Bans for Akpan and Bennett

Posted: Wed 15 Feb 2017

Rovers midfielders Hope Akpan and Elliott Bennett will both miss this weekend's Emirates FA Cup fifth round tie against Manchester United through suspension.

The duo have been issued with bans following Tuesday night's Championship match against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Akpan will serve a three-match ban for violent conduct after being shown a red card by referee Scott Duncan, while Bennett has been handed a two-match suspension for using offensive language following the final whistle.
