Gary McSheffrey will be suspended for Coventry City's match at home to Stoke City on November 2 after receiving his fifth booking of season during the 2-1 defeat away to Leicester City on Sunday.
The striker, whose performances in recent matches have been superlative, gave Coventry the lead on Sunday but was later booked for diving inside the penalty area. McSheffrey protested his innocence but to no avail.
"We conceded a couple of bad goals, one from a long throw-in and one from a corner so it's the same things that are constantly shooting us in the foot at the moment," McSheffrey said.
"We should be big and tough enough not to concede in the last minute of a half but on the other hand we controlled the game and should have had a couple of penalties but the referee's decisions didn't go our way.
"As far as I was concerned they were both stonewall penalties and why would I go down when I've got the chance to score?"
Despite missing the match against Stoke at the Ricoh Arena, McSheffrey is eligible to play against Luton Town on Saturday. He enjoyed two loan spells with Luton and flourished.
Luton took McSheffrey at the start of the past two seasons and he scored ten goals in 24 appearances for Mike Newell's men, who are third in the Coca-Cola Championship table.
"It will be really nice to play against Luton because I never have done before and a lot of the lads that I knew when I was with them are still there and they're obviously doing very well," McSheffrey said.
"I think their start has surprised most people but I thought they could easily hold it together in this league and I had a feeling they would do well.
"But we have got to go out there and play well for our fans and give them our own welcome to the Championship."
