NZ Knights striker cops two-match ban

The hapless New Zealand Knights have received another setback, with striker Sean Devine being given a two-match A-League ban in the wake of last weekend's all-in brawl at Central Coast Stadium.

Devine, one of several players and officials from both sides involved in a sideline melee late in Central Coast Mariners' 1-0 win over the Knights, was suspended for aggressive conduct at a Football Federation Australia disciplinary hearing in Sydney.

He received a one-match ban on that charge from disciplinary arbitrator Tony O'Reilly, plus a further one-game suspension for exceeding his yellow-card limit during the game.

Devine had been substituted prior to the incident, but became involved in the sideline melee and was cited by the FFA on video evidence.

A spectator also jumped the fence and became involved in the melee.

He received a 12-month ban from Central Coast Stadium, plus a $500 police fine and infringement notice earlier this week.

Devine will not be eligible to play until the bottom-placed Knights' home match against Adelaide United on January 28.
