Coventry City defender Dan Seaborne has been suspended for three matches by the FA disciplinary panel.

The on-loan Yeovil defender, who is a doubt for the New Year's Day game against Rotherham with a calf injury, has been suspended for a first-half incident with Oldham striker Jonson Clarke-Harris, which was reviewed after the game by the panel.

The club have until 6pm to appeal the suspension and City manager Steven Pressley has said they are currently deciding whether to take that course of action

Pressley said: "Dan Seaborne has been given a three-match suspension. The match-day observer noticed an incident in the first-half which he reported to the FA.

"They have taken appropriate action and given him a three-match ban. We have until 6pm to decide whether or not to appeal the decision and we are still in discussions whether we are going to appeal or not.

"The risk with an appeal is if we lose the appeal, Dan (Seaborne) could get a further ban and miss more matches so we have to look at it."
