Pair face bans after Brighton dismissals

Sam Hutchinson and Steven Fletcher both face bans after being sent off at Brighton on Friday evening.

Hutchinson received two yellow cards for fouls, the second one a rash challenge on Solly March in stoppage time, while Fletcher was given a straight red for leaning his head into Brighton’s Dale Stephens in the closing minutes.

Two yellows would normally see Hutchinson banned for one game but as he has already been red carded this season – at home to Bristol City – he will now expect a two-match ban.

Fletcher faces a likely three-game suspension for his straight red card.
