Wanderers FC defender Jerome Polenz has received a one-match ban for the red card he received againt Melbourne Heart.

The independent Match Review Panel (MRP) - consisting of Simon Micallef (Chair), Alan Davidson and Con Diomis - convened to consider the incident from Round 18 of the Hyundai A-League 2012/13 season and found a one-match ban to be appropriate for the German.

Polenz was given a straight red by referee Strebre Delovski for his challenge on David Williams, bringing down the Heart attacker from behind when he was the last man, before Ante Covic saved a weak Josip Tadic penalty.

Polenz will miss the Wanderers away trip to Adelaide United.
