Brighton & Hove Albion full-back Poppy Pattinson has been issued with a three-match ban following an incident which occurred in the fixture against Liverpool on Sunday.

Pattinson appeared to stand on the upper leg of Liverpool forward Sophie Román Haug directly in front of the linesman, however, the incident was not seen. Following a review of the match footage, it has been determined that Pattinson did commit an offence and she will now miss her side’s next three matches.
