CHRIS MORGAN, Barnsley's defensive hero in the draw at Old Trafford on Sunday, is out of his side's FA Cup fifth round replay against Manchester United due to his third ban of the season.

Morgan has been outstanding since breaking into the Tykes' first team a month ago and proved inspirational at the heart of the defence in the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

However, Morgan, who turned 20 on Friday and then made only his fifth appearance for Danny Wilson's side 48 hours later, has been collecting yellow cards in the reserves.

Morgan's suspension means he will be sidelined for Saturday's trip to Coventry in the Premiership and the return match with Alex Ferguson's side at Oakwell next Wednesday.
