Djulbic to fight three-game ban

Djulbic to fight three-game ban
Perth defender Dino Djulbic will fight his three-game A-League ban for a violent conduct charge.

Perth defender Dino Djulbic will fight his three-game A-League ban, but Melbourne City winger Fernando Brandan accepted his two-match suspension for the pair's extra-time clash at AAMI Park.

Both players were red-carded and charged with violent conduct after colliding in City's attacking penalty box in the 91st minute of Tuesday night's 3-3 draw.

Djulbic has decided to contest his more serious punishment by referring his case to FFA's independent disciplinary and ethics committee, with a hearing date to be confirmed.
