GEELONG Amateur will be without Mitch Day for Saturday’s blockbuster clash with unbeaten ladder leader Barwon Heads after the star forward accepted a one-week suspension for an incident with Torquay’s Jake Reeves.

The three-time BFL leading goal kicker and 2015 Ash medallist was cited by the AFL Barwon Match Review Panel for┬ácarelessly striking Reeves during Ammos’ win over the Tigers on Saturday.

Day has kicked eight goals from three games this year, giving him 287 goals from 59 games since arriving at Queen’s Park ahead of the 2015 season.

He was one of three players cited, with Bell Park’s Pat Knott offered a two-week ban for forceful front-on contact on Geelong West’s Patrick Eastman in the Dragons’ win over the Giants on Saturday night.

Knott, who served a three-match ban last year for striking St Joseph’s forward Rhys Hultgren last year, will miss matches against North Shore and Newtown & Chilwell if he accepts the offer.

Bell Park has until 10am Tuesday morning to decide whether they will challenge.

Meanwhile, Werribee Centrals will be without Chris Koutzamanis for upcoming matches against Corio and Geelong West Giants after he accepted the two-week suspension offered for abusive language towards an umpire in the Centurions’ loss to Inverleigh.
