With Derby County having a thin enough squad as it is, Wayne Rooney will have been disappointed to learn that he will be missing Craig Forsyth for the next three matches.

The experienced Scot has appeared in all five matches for the Rams this season, including the East Midlands Derby against Nottingham Forest last weekend.

But he was involved in a flashpoint that has ended up seeing him on the receiving end of a suspension by the FA.

In just the 5th minute of the match at Pride Park, Forsyth appeared to stamp on Forest’s Philip Zinckernagel although there was much debate as to whether it was purposeful or accidental.

Derby County 1-1 Huddersfield Town: Which defender scored in the opening game of the season for Derby?

Forsyth remained on the pitch for the remainder of the match in what ended up being a 1-1 draw, but he has now been punished for what occurred in the opening moments.

The 32-year-old admitted the charge and he will now be missing for the next three Championship matches, with Lee Buchanan primed to replace him.

Rams fans have been reacting to the ban and it’s fair to say that there’s a lot of unhappy supporters when it comes to the FA’s decision.
