The MRP has the authority to consider the incident as Janjetovic was issued with a direct Red Card by the Referee.

The MRP confirmed that Janjetovic will serve a suspension of one (1) match, being the mandatory match suspension and the minimum sanction for the offence.  

The Wanderers keeper will miss his side's trip to Adelaide to take on the Reds on Boxing Day.
