Henry Bonello recieves a three-match suspension Published on: 20-10-2016

Valletta goalkeeper Henry Bonello was handed a three- match ban yesterday following his late sending-off in the 3-1 league victory over Gżira United last Saturday. 

Bonello was shown a straight red card by Northern Irish referee Keith Kennedy 13 minutes from time for hitting an opponent inside the six-yard box. 

Moises Avila Perez’s ensuing penalty was saved by Maverick Buhagiar, Valletta’s reserve goalkeeper who had come on for Umeh Calistus. 

The champions have yet to decide whether to appeal Bonello’s three-match ban which rules him out of the Premier League matches against Tarxien Rainbows on Saturday, St Andrew’s (October 28) and Ħamrun Spartans (November 5).
