Sheffield United goalkeeper Wes Foderingham is expected to miss the next two league games after being given a red card against Burnley on Monday night.
The former Rangers player was handed his marching orders by referee Michael Salisbury after bringing down Nathan Tella outside of the box, following a mix-up with Jack Robinson during the 2-0 defeat.
For denying a goalscoring opportunity, Foderingham will automatically be given a one-match suspension. However, after being sent off earlier this season versus Blackpool, that ban is expected to be increased to two games.
The 32-year-old will, therefore, be sidelined for the game against Cardiff City on Saturday and the subsequent league fixture versus Bristol City next Tuesday. However, crucially, he should be available to face Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final later this month.
In Foderingham’s absence, Adam Davies will put on the gloves. The Wales international has only played seven times this campaign, conceding nine goals and keeping two clean sheets.
