Grant Smith looks set to miss the upcoming games against Torquay and Bournemouth following his post match red card against Torquay on Boxing Day.
Multiple reports suggested the Goalkeeper was shown a red card following the conclusion of the 3-0 defeat, an incident which has now been confirmed as an act of “Foul and Abusive Language”, something which Darren Sarll seemed to assume after the game;
“I don’t know what happened with Grant (Smith), I can make an assumption that he has said something to the referee after the game. If he has and that is the reason why, then I don’t condone that, I’m all for tackling, competing, I’m not great defending players for dissent, if it’s dissent, but we’ll find out.”
We face Torquay and Bournemouth in the next two games which, unless there are any appeals, will see Max Evans (or a loan replacement) between the sticks.
