Warrington Town's FA Cup first-round match winner Craig Robinson is set to miss out on their second-round tie at Gateshead because of suspension.

The defender, 32, was sent off during the 3-0 Evo-Stik Northern Premier League defeat away at Kendal on Saturday for swearing at an official.

Robinson headed the winner as eighth-tier Warrington beat League Two's Exeter 1-0 at Cantilever Park.

It is understood that Robinson intends to appeal against the decision.

Striker Ben Wharton was also dismissed in the match and both players face automatic three-match bans, which would rule them out of the televised tie at Conference side Gateshead on 7 December.
