Key Orient midfielder Romain Vincelot will miss tomorrow’s clash with Preston after the FA decided he got booked deliberately to trigger a suspension.

The Frenchman has been handed a one game suspension and £1,500 fine after English football’s governing body decided he got his fifth yellow card of the season against Southport in the FA Cup on Saturday on purpose.

It caused him to miss Tuesday’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy defeat at Stevenage rather than a League One fixture, but he will now be unavailable for selection tomorrow.

English football’s governing body says it was an “attempt to undermine the disciplinary process.”

Orient, who are two points clear at the top of the table, will not contest the decision and will be without the 28-year-old for the clash at Brisbane Road.
