NATIONAL Premier League players Regan Lundy and Liam Wilson were both handed down two-match suspensions by Northern NSW Football on Tuesday.
It means the pair won't be back with Charlestown and Weston respectively until next month, sidelined for rounds four and five but likely available for FFA Cup clashes scheduled for top-tier clubs on May 1-2.
The punishments followed red cards issued in separate fixtures on Saturday.
IN THE NEWS:
Lundy's ban was for violent conduct, having been sent off and leaving Azzurri with 10 men against Broadmeadow at Lisle Carr Oval.
Wilson's was for serious foul play, having also been given his marching orders inside the opening 20 minutes but at Weston with the Bears hosting Adamstown.
The upcoming draw has Charlestown away to Maitland and home to Edgeworth while Weston hit the road against Broadmeadow and the Magpies.
* BROADMEADOW'S Jon Griffiths will serve just the automatic one-game suspension, having been sent off in the 21st minute following a second yellow card against Charlestown on the weekend.
* OLYMPIC are sitting towards the pointy end of both most goals scored and most goals conceded after the opening three rounds.
They have put a competition-high nine in the back of the net, but also have let in eight, only behind Adamstown (10), at the other end.
* PRELIMINARY rounds of the FFA Cup continue this week with Dudley Redhead, Mayfield United, Wallsend, Minmi, Kahibah, Belmont Swansea, New Lambton and Singleton among the recent winners.
