Centre-back to miss three games after being sent off against Oldham

Ben Chorley will miss the FA Cup match with Everton as part of his suspension following his red card at Oldham Athletic on Saturday.

The Stevenage centre-back was sent off with five minutes of the match remaining following an incident with Jonson Clarke-Harris off the ball, and has subsequently been placed on the FA suspension list for three matches.

He will miss the league game with Swindon Town tonight (Tuesday), Saturday’s match at home to Notts County and the FA Cup game on January 25.

Chorley’s red card is Boro’s fifth of the season so far - two fewer than Tranmere Rovers who top the league’s disciplinary standings with seven.
