Newport County’s Ryan Inniss given five-game ban for biting


For biting, newport County defender Ryan Inniss has been given a five-match ban from the FA.
Inniss was sent off within an EFL Trophy game which County lost 5-4 to West Ham U21s September 4, on Wednesday and has been billed.
The 6ft 5in centre-back, on loan from Crystal Palace, has been dismissed late to the incident which included 18-year-old Hammers left-back Reece Hannam.
An FA statement read:”Ryan Inniss has announced that a breach and been suspended for his next five first-team competitive matches by an individual Regulatory Commission.
“The normal three-match ban that would ordinarily use was clearly inadequate.”
Speaking after the match, County boss Michael Flynn admitted he could not defend the loanee.
He explained:”Their player said he got humiliated, so I will have a look at that and learn what happened.
“If he’s bitten himit’s inexcusable and that I won’t be fighting his corner.”
The 24-year-old, who has captained the book side of Palace and is away from Selhurst Park on his loan bargain, will now miss the matches from Macclesfield Northampton, Exeter, Swindon and Carlisle of Newport.
