Ban threat for Herminator

Temporary Addicks captain Hermann Hreidarsson could be forced to sit out the rest of Charlton Athletic's season for an elbowing offence that went undetected last weekend. The Icelandic defender faces a three-match ban, the number of Charlton's remaining fixtures, following an incident in their 2-1 defeat at Fulham on Saturday.
TV replays showed Hreidarsson elbowing Luis Boa Morte as players jostled for a set piece.

The referee, Martin Atkinson, appeared not to see the exchange, which left Boa Morte on the turf (although he seemed to spend quite a lot of the match prostate for various reasons), and has been asked to check replays. It should be noted that both players seemed to be on good terms at the end of the match. If Atkinson feels Hreidarsson should have been sent off, the FA will bring a charge of violent conduct which carries a three-match ban.

Should this happen, Chris Powell would fill the left back slot with Sorondo and Perry (or even the forgotten Fortune) in central defence.

Any other players banned this season retrospectively on the evidence of TV footage??
