Football - Ledesma banned for Boro

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray will be without striker Emmanuel Ledesma for Saturday's Sky Bet Championship clash with Bournemouth.

PA Sport Report

The 25-year-old Argentinian was sent off in injury time for a foul on Henri Lansbury during Tuesday night's 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest and will start a three-match ban at the weekend.

Defender Stuart Parnaby missed the trip to the City Ground with an ankle problem and will be assessed in the run-up to the game.

Hungary midfielder Jozsef Varga was also absent at Forest after damaging a hip on international duty, and Mowbray will make a late decision on him too.
