Ross Aloisi banned for dangerous tackle
Wellington Phoenix captain Ross Aloisi has received a one-match ban after being sent off in last Friday's A-League loss to Sydney FC.
Aloisi was shown the red card in the 91st minute of the 2-0 loss after a dangerous tackle on Sydney's Ufuk Talay.
A Football Federation Australia match review panel decided Aloisi would receive a one-match suspension, representing the mandatory match suspension for a red card.
The ban means he will miss Friday's away match against Melbourne Victory but will be available for the Phoenix's final game of the season against Central Coast in Gosford.
