Aleksandar Mitrovic has been banned for his elbow on on-loan Albion defender Ben White.

The Fulham striker must sit out three matches after being found guilty of violent conduct in Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Leeds.

Mitrovic caught White with an elbow only three minutes into the match, but the Serbia international avoided immediate punishment as the incident was missed by match officials.

Retrospective action was almost inevitable with cameras having a clearer view.

A ban duly followed this afternoon after Mitrovic admitted a charge of violent conduct.
