Matt Simon Learns Fate For Verbal Spray

Another blow for our Mariners

Matt Simon Learns Fate For Verbal Spray Fox Sports

The Central Coast Mariners will be without captain Matt Simon for at least the next 2 weeks after his sanction for verbally abusing a referee was announced today by Football Federation Australia.

On top of the standard one week for the red card, the veteran striker will also serve a week for breaching the A-League's Code of Conduct.

A third week has been suspended, and will only apply if Simon slips up.

The Mariners play Wellington in Gosford this Saturday, 8 points adrift at the bottom of the ladder, in a season that started with a lightning bolt, and quickly turned gloomy.
