Tom Barkhuizen Suspension Reduced On Appeal

29 September 2020

Preston North End’s appeal against the red card awarded to Tom Barkhuizen in Saturday’s game against Stoke City has been heard by an FA panel.

The panel have dismissed the appeal, meaning that the Lilywhites’ No.29 will serve a suspension for the tackle on Morgan Fox.

However, they decided that the ban was excessive for the incident and have reduced the number of games that the player will miss from three to one, meaning that he will only miss the trip to face Thomas Frank’s Brentford this weekend.

The 27-year-old forward will be back in contention after the international break for the home game against Cardiff City on Sunday 18th October following the completion of the suspension.
