Blackburn Rovers midfielder Hope Akpan will miss this weekend’s FA Cup fifth round tie against Manchester United after he was slapped a three-match ban.

The Nigeria midfielder was banned following Tuesday night's English Championship match against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

Akpan will serve a three-match ban for violent conduct after being shown a red card by referee Scott Duncan, who chalked off his goal.
