Two-match additional suspension for Leon Barnett
Norwich City defender Leon Barnett has been given an additional two match suspension at his FA hearing today.
The Canaries central defender has already served a one-game suspension after being sent off against Portsmouth earlier this month.
Barnett has been punished for the separate offence of improper conduct – to which he pleaded guilty – having thrown the ball in frustration at referee Simon Hooper as he walked off having been shown a second yellow after conceding the penalty which sealed a 2-0 defeat. He apologised to the official – and Lambert – immediately after the game.
