Newport defender Ryan Inniss has been hit with an increased five-game ban for biting.

The centre-back, on-loan at the Welsh side from Crystal Palace, received his punishment after being sent off following an off-the-ball clash against West Ham’s under-21s.

The 24 year-old was dismissed in the 90th minute of the EFL Trophy match earlier this month after an incident involving Reece Hannam.

He was accused of sinking his teeth into the Hammers youngster and subsequently charged with the FA ruling that the standard three match ban for violent conduct was ‘clearly insufficient.’

Newport boss Ryan Flynn said after the incident: ‘Their player said he got bitten so I’ll have a look at that and find out what happened.

‘If he has done that, it’s inexcusable and I won’t be fighting his corner for it.’

Inniss admitted the charge and his ban will begin with immediate effect.
