Perth Glory captain Rostyn Griffiths gets two-game suspension

Perth Glory's Rostyn Griffiths
Rostyn Griffiths has been handed a two-game suspension.

Perth Glory won't appeal the two-game A-League ban handed to captain Rostyn Griffiths over his second-half brain snap in Newcastle.

Griffiths was shown a second yellow card for a challenge on Devante Clut late in Sunday's 2-2 draw with the Jets, before then copping a straight red for giving referee Stephen Lucas a retaliatory earful.

After receiving submissions from Griffiths and the Glory, the match review panel found the midfielder guilty of breaching the national code of conduct and warned any...

John Aloisi raises doubts over A-League's Asian quota rule

Brisbane Roar coach John Aloisi
John Aloisi has doubts over the A-League's plans to inroduce a new foreign player quota rule.

A-League coaches will have no choice but to expand their scouting networks in Asia if new foreign player rules are introduced, John Aloisi says.

But the Brisbane Roar boss warned it won't be so easy for Australian teams to attract top-level players from major Asian countries because of financial constraints.

It would move the A-League in line with other top competitions in the Asian...

A-League referees apologise to Melbourne City over offside goal

Melbourne City coach Michael Valkanis
Michael Valkanis remains unhappy despite an apology from the referees.

Melbourne City coach Michael Valkanis says refereeing officials have reached out to apologise for yet another A-League blunder in their 2-1 loss to Adelaide United.

Nicolas Colazo's first-half goal last Thursday was judged offside by referee Jonathan Barreiro, much to City's disgust. The Argentine received Luke Brattan's through-ball and rounded Eugene Galekovic to slot home, only for the linesman's flag to rule the strike out.

Replays suggested Colazo was almost fully onside, with only his outstretched...

John Aloisi coy on bringing 'rested' Jamie Maclaren back into Brisbane XI

Brisbane Roar striker Jamie Maclaren
Brisbane Roar striker Jamie Maclaren was dropped to the bench against the Melbourne Victory last week.

Jamie Maclaren has responded well to his shock benching, but coach John Aloisi won't reveal if he's done enough to earn a recall to the Brisbane Roar's starting side.

Maclaren was dropped to the bench for the Roar's 3-2 defeat to Melbourne Victory last week, but Aloisi said he was simply resting the fringe Socceroo ahead of a tough upcoming schedule, rather than punishing him for poor form or his refusal to sign a contract extension.

It was only the second time the 23-year-old has been named among...
