Barnsley defender Ryan Shotton has paid a heavy price for his late booking at Plymouth in midweek as he will now miss both games over the Easter holidays.

Shotton, on loan from Stoke, received a yellow card in the fourth minute of time added on for a foul on Plymouth midfielder Craig Noone. It was his 10th booking of the season.

Shotton, who has been dismissed twice this season against Bristol City in October and Watford in February, will now face an automatic two-match ban.

The 21-year-old, a tower of strength in the Tykes' back four since arriving on a season-long loan from Stoke at the end of September, will miss Saturday's derby at Sheffield United and the home clash with Peterborough on Monday.
