Man City player banned

Manchester City's Joey Barton has been given an automatic one-match suspension after picking up his fifth booking in six games against Fulham on Saturday.

As a result, the 23-year-old midfielder will miss his side's Premiership game with Blackburn on 19 November.

However, City manager Stuart Pearce expects to have Claudio Reyna fully fit to face in-form Rovers.

"Tackling is a big part of Joey's game and it is up to him to make sure the aggression is controlled," said Pearce.
