Waterford are appealing the severity of the bans dished out to Stanley Aborah and Bastien Hery.

And the Blues hearing will take place at the FAI this Thursday.

Ex-Ajax man Aborah was hit with a six-match suspension for his part in the mass brawl at the end of their win over Cork City earlier this month.

And Hery received four games for his part in the same incident at the RSC. They served automatic bans for Friday’s defeat to Derry City at the Brandywell and were not involved against St Pat’s last night.

Waterford chiefs had remained tight-lipped on their intentions but have now confirmed that an appeal was lodged.

Cork City confirmed last week that they would not appeal the four and three match bans handed down to Steven Beattie and Garry Buckley for their part in the brawl.

Meanwhile, Waterford defender Kenny Browne is facing up to six weeks on the sidelines with cracked ribs.
