Nasri given three-match ban after no appeal

SAMIR NASRI will serve a three-match suspension after Manchester City decided not to appeal his sending off at Norwich on Saturday when he was dismissed for an alleged headbutt.

Roberto Mancini had hinted the club would appeal but that is not the case and Nasri will miss out on home dates against Stoke and Watford as well as a clash with former club Arsenal at the Emirates.

City's record with Nasri this season reads: W8 D7 L4 and without: W5 D3 L1

Tranmere v Guiseley

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Guiseley have conceded at least two goals in all six of their league games
Expert verdict
Tranmere have made a sound start in their bid to return to the Sky Bet Football League at the second attempt but the early leaders failed to beat struggling Southport on Saturday. Rovers should still have enough about them to score a clear victory over Guiseley who have lost all six of their league games this season. They went down 4-1 to Bromley on Saturday and another heavy loss is likely.
