Harry Novillo's A-League finals ban upheld

  • Harry Novillo's A-League finals ban upheld

Harry Novillo will play no part in Melbourne City's A-League semi-final against Adelaide, with FFA's independent disciplinary committee throwing out the club's appeal against his two-match ban.

Novillo was given a two-week suspension by the A-League match review panel for kicking out in the direction of Reds players during a melee in this month's final-round clash at AAMI Park.

Sitting in Sydney on Tuesday night, the committee did not buy City's explanation that the 24-year-old Frenchman had extended his leg to regain balance after being pushed, while also trying to do a good deed by separating incensed players.
