NEWS | Club to appeal Khan dismissal

The 22-year-old was dismissed in second half stoppage time after the Spireites netted a late winner, for an adjudged altercation with referee Kevin Johnson. 

On the grounds that any physical contact made with the official was of an accidental nature, the club has chosen to appeal the dismissal and will await the decision of the Independent Regulatory Commission. 

If unsuccessful, Khan will serve a thus far undetermined suspension, starting with Friday’s Emirates FA Cup fourth round tie against Manchester United.
