Hibernian to contest Liam Craig's two-match ban

Hibernian midfielder Liam Craig is accused by Hearts player Ryan Stevenson

Hibernian have appealed against the violent conduct charge issued to Liam Craig by the Scottish FA.

The midfielder faces a two-match ban for allegedly trying to kick Hearts' Ryan Stevenson in the face during his side's League Cup loss at Easter Road.

A principal hearing date has been set for 7 November for Craig, who has since played in a defeat at Motherwell.

If the complaint is upheld, the player will miss the following Premiership match and one match in the League Cup.
