SWINDON Town goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux has been slapped with a four-game ban by the FA following an incident after last week's home defeat by Coventry City.

Town this morning confirmed that their player had been sanctioned by the governing body for using foul and abusive language towards match officials in the wake of the 2-1 loss to the Sky Blues.

Vigouroux was shown a red card by referee Charles Breakspear after the final whistle of the contest, in which Town midfielder James Dunne was sent off for violent conduct, although that punishment was later rescinded.

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Vigouroux is also set to face punishment from his club, who deemed his conduct as "unacceptable" and revealed the player will be will be "disciplined internally.''

Vigouroux will miss our Saturday's trip to Cheltenham Town as well as next Saturday's League Two visit to Mansfield Town, plus the home clash against Lincoln City on October 17 and the visit of Wycombe Wanderers four days later.
