Sydney's Simon cited for hit on Jakobsen

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 12/12/2016

Sydney FC striker Matt Simon has been issued a show-cause notice for shouldering Melbourne City defender Michael Jakobsen in the face late in Friday night's 1-1 A-League draw.

Moments after the Sky Blues were awarded a free kick for Jakobsen's foul on Simon, the forward appeared to throw his shoulder into the Dane's head, knocking him to the ground.

Referee Kris Griffiths-Jones didn't take action against Simon, leaving the A-League's match review panel free to cite him on Monday.

He has until 1pm (AEDT) on Tuesday to respond.
