Leo Lacroix handed two-match ban

Western United defender Leo Lacroix has been handed a two-match ban following his late red card in Saturday night’s loss to Perth Glory.

The Football Australia Match Review Panel determined that Lacroix committed the offence of “assault on a player (e.g. violent conduct when not challenging for the ball) or against any other person other than a match official, including attempted assault”.

Western United FC and Leo Lacroix will not appeal the two (2) match sanction proposed by the (MRP), and Lacroix will subsequently be unavailable for selection for Western United FC’s next two Isuzu UTE A-League Men matches.
