O'Donovan cops eight-game ban for headbutt

  • O'Donovan cops eight-game ban for headbutt

Central Coast striker Roy O'Donovan has been handed an eight-week A-League ban for his New Year's headbutt on Wellington defender Manny Muscat.

The Irishman fronted an independent disciplinary committee on Wednesday, where he pleaded guilty with mitigating circumstances to a charge of violent off-the-ball conduct during the Mariners' 3-1 win in Gosford.

The committee accepted O'Donovan had had a momentary lapse of judgment in retaliation to Muscat elbowing him in the eye moments earlier, and also took into account his previous good record.
