Motherwell defender Carroll given retrospective two-match ban

Motherwell full-back Jake Carroll has received a retrospective two-match ban following a challenge on Livingston’s Nicky Devlin.

Carroll caught Devlin on the knee in a sliding challenge during stoppage-time of Saturday’s goalless draw and was booked.

However, the Scottish Football Association compliance officer deemed the tackle serious foul play and Motherwell opted not to challenge the suspension.

Carroll will miss Saturday’s visit of Ladbrokes Premiership champions Celtic and a Betfred Cup tie with Hearts.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
