Prior completes suspension against Orient

Spencer Prior missed yesterdays game at Rotherham and will miss Tuesday nights Carling Cup game against Orient. It was a surprise to City fans that Prior was suspended for the opening of the season. His bookings tally did not seem to provide an answer.

There was a clue in last nights Football Echo. They suggest Prior was punished after the Bristol City game in which Gareth Ainsworth was sent off. He was not sent off on the day but was later punished.

Prior also missed the start of last season after calling the ref "a %&*% %$&" or something like that in the Stoke play off defeat.
