Stoke defender Huth to serve three-match ban

The German centre-back elbowed Fulham's Philippe Senderos during the Potters' Premier League match at Craven Cottage Saturday, and has been retrospectively suspended
Stoke City defender Roberth Huth has admitted an FA charge of violent conduct and has been handed a three-match suspension.

The 28-year-old centre-back was charged on Tuesday following an incident with Fulham defender Philippe Senderos during the Potters' 1-0 defeat at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

The German defender aimed an elbow at Senderos, which was not seen by the match officials, but was subsequently spotted by television cameras.

Though Tony Pulis' side were given the opportunity to appeal the decision, they chose not to, meaning the centre-back will miss Stoke's league matches against West Ham, Newcastle and West Brom.

Huth has been involved in a number of similar incidents, including an alleged stamp on Liverpool forward Luis Suarez earlier this season and an elbow on Mario Balotelli in the 2011 FA Cup final.
