Diaby Suspended For Four Matches

21 April 2023

Bambo Diaby will miss Preston North End’s next four matches following a retrospective ban from the FA.

The defender has been charged with violent conduct for an incident during the midweek defeat to Swansea City and as a result will be unavailable for Saturday’s derby against Blackburn Rovers, as well as the following three matches.

A full statement from the FA can be found below:

"Preston North End’s Bambo Diaby has been suspended for four matches following an incident in the 89th minute of their EFL Championship game against Swansea City on Wednesday 19 April.

"The defender’s behaviour was not seen by the match officials at the time, but it was caught on camera, and he subsequently admitted that it constitutes violent conduct.

"Bambo Diaby contested that the standard sanction was excessive but this was dismissed by an independent Regulatory Commission."
