Manny Muscat suspended after elbowing incident

Wellington Phoenix midfielder Manny Muscat has been suspended for three matches for elbowing the Roar's Nicholas Fitzgerald in the head in their New Years Day loss in Brisbane.

The Match Review Panel has found Muscat guilty of assault on a player when not challenging for the ball.

With striker Tyler Boyd also suspended for receiving two yellow cards in the match, All White Michael Boxall and Cameron Lindsay have been called into the squad to play the Melbourne Victory on Saturday.
