Junior Brown’s sending off in the defeat at Hartlepool on Saturday would have carried a mandatory three-match suspension as it was but with it his second of the season he’ll be out for longer.

Adam Murray’s told the Official Website that he doesn’t, and nor does Brown himself, have ‘any complaints’ with the decision as it was clearly a red card, although he was quick to point out that it ‘looked worse than it was’ as the winger wouldn’t look to intentional catch Brad Walker as he did with any malice at all, as he’s not that sort of person.

His sending off for previous club Oxford, when he saw red for them playing in the League Cup against West Brom in August, is the reason for his extended suspension. As much as losing him is a blow he feels that we’ve got ‘enough players in the squad’ that can come in and do a job.

‘We haven’t really got any complaints on the incident.

‘It looked a lot worse than it was and Junior isn’t that kind of player or person to go in and intentionally hurt somebody, but their lad’s head has gone down, Junior’s foot has gone high and the collision has happened.

‘We’re obviously ridiculously gutted with the four-game ban. It’s a massive loss for us, but we’ve got enough players in the squad that can come in and do a job.’

We are going to be left short for wingers for the League 2 game with York on Saturday though as his suspension is added to Reggie Lambe being away with Bermuda and the decision not to extend Jeffrey Monakana’s loan spell from Brighton.

As a result Murray knows that ‘it limits our creative options’ so we’ll have to ‘re-invent ourselves a little bit’ but we’ll get though ‘best as we possibly can.’ This is what you have a squad for isn’t it! We’ll get through.
