Three-match ban for Johnson


Lee Johnson has received a three-match ban following his sending off at Notts County.

The midfielder, who is on loan from Bristol City, was shown a straight red during the first half for a clash with Alan Judge in Chesterfield FC’s 3-1 Johnstone Paints Trophy victory at Meadow Lane.

His 22nd-minute challenge was ruled as ‘serious foul play’ and he will miss Saturday’s match at Sheffield Wednesday and the following two home games against Notts County and Hartlepool United.

Meanwhile, the away game at Hillsborough on Saturday had been designated all-ticket for Chesterfield supporters.

Tickets for the game - costing £25 for adults and £15 for concessions - will be on sale at the Spireites ticket office until 5pm on Friday.

No tickets will be available on the day of the match.
