DANNY Davidson will begin his three-match ban on Saturday - but the Boston United striker is still fuming over his dismissal.

The 6ft 4ins forward was sent off for violent conduct as he clashed with Stalybridge Celtic’s Tim Ryan in the 3-1 defeat a fortnight ago.

The incident, which began with Ryan hauling his opponent to the floor and lashing out at him while he remained grounded, left United manager Paul Hurst branding referee Paul Marsden’s decision as ‘one of the worst’ he had seen in football.

“I know I did not do anything to warrant getting a red card, said Davidson, who used his arms to break Ryan’s hold. “I went in to see the referee at the end of the game and it concluded with him saying that if he had got it wrong, he apologised and would do better next time.

“What use is that to me?”

Davidson, who scored the equaliser against Solihull last week, will now miss Pilgrims’ Blue Square Bet North matches against Droylsden, Stafford Rangers and Gloucester City.

United fans are being warned to leave home and hour earlier than normal ahead of Boston’s home match against Droylsden on Saturday, due to major road closures in the town.
