Ross County duo Ross Callachan and Jack Baldwin have accepted two-match bans following incidents against Kilmarnock on Saturday.

The Staggies players were charged by the Scottish Football Association’s compliance officer for challenges made in the  1-0 win over against Killie.

Midfielder Callachan was booked for a foul from behind on Ryan Alebiosu in the 38th minute before being sent off later in the game for a second bookable offence.

However, his yellow card was upgraded to a straight red by the compliance officer following a review, while defender Baldwin has also had his second-half booking for a foul on Kerr McInroy upgraded to a red card.

Both players will miss the upcoming games against Rangers and Celtic.

A tweet from Ross County read: “We can confirm that following charges by the SFA Compliance Officer, Jack Baldwin and Ross Callachan have accepted two-match bans.

“Both players will miss our upcoming matches with Rangers and Celtic.”
