Reddy to go

-

EDIT: On 24/01/11 Liam Reddy was handed down a two match suspension, the decision accepted by Sydney FC.

What can only be described as a ‘right hook’ could land Sydney ‘keeper Liam Reddy in strife, a visit to the Match Review Panel almost certainly on the cards.

Reddy clashed mid-air with Matt Simon in the 37th minute of the game at Bluetongue Stadium on Sunday. As the pair fell together in a heap, Reddy allegedly punched Simon in what appeared to be the stomach.

Questions regarding the incident came as a surprise to Sydney coach Vitezslav Lavicka, who was unaware of his players indiscretion.

“I don’t know what you mean? I didn’t see that moment. It was a tough challenge between their striker and our ‘keeper – hard to say”.

It was no such surprise for Simon, who took the rough play in his stride.

“It seems to be always a battle when I’m playing! I enjoy that sort of stuff as everyone knows – you just get on with the game.

“I cop heaps every game don’t I?” said Simon.

Mariners coach Graham Arnold also weighed in on the incident, jovially desiring repercussions.

“The Match Review panel should be good. For once someone else hey?”

However, a composed Simon didn’t seem to want to take matters further.

“It was a bit of a scramble. We’ll leave it on the field.”

Next week the Central Coast face off with Adelaide United in what will be a defining moment of their season. A win here would give the Mariners a four point advantage over third placed Adelaide. Graham Arnold had some short yet powerful words for the Reds, who will be confident after their 8-1 drumming over North Queensland Fury this week.

“We’re not North Queensland”.
