St Mirren accept three-match ban for Jim Goodwin

St Mirren have revealed they are "disappointed" with player-coach Jim Goodwin after accepting his three-match ban for violent conduct.

The 32-year-old was hit with the fixed penalty by the SFA for elbowing Dundee United's Aidan Connolly in the face during his side's 3-0 weekend defeat.

St Mirren said they were "disappointed in Jim's conduct given this is not the first time he has been guilty of an offence of this nature."

The Buddies have taken internal action.

Goodwin, who received a two-match ban last term for elbowing United's Stuart Armstrong, was not punished for the incident involving Connolly during the match.
