AFC Telford defender Dan Preston may face sack after red cards

Dan Preston

AFC Telford United manager Andy Sinton is considering sacking defender Dan Preston following his second red card of the season.

After returning from a six-match ban following an altercation against Luton Town, Preston, 21, got sent off in his comeback in midweek against Newport, to earn a further four-match ban.

"I'm undecided on the final course of action," Sinton told BBC Sport.

"But I've contemplated everything. Every avenue is being explored."

Sinton told BBC Radio Shropshire: "In the cold light of day it would be easy to make an emotional decision and a knee-jerk reaction.

"We're looking at the fors and againsts. We'll probably make a decision after the weekend."

Preston's midweek red card was for a foul on Newport striker Jefferson Louis, just 12 minutes after being booked for a challenge on the same player.

He starts his latest suspension on Saturday when Telford, 13th in the Blue Square Bet Premier, go to Gateshead.
