TEENAGE striker Richard Brodie was sent off as York City reserves lost 2-1 at Scarborough in the North Riding Cup last night.

Brodie was given his marching orders in the first half following an aerial clash that was deemed worthy of a straight red card.

The 19-year-old forward has scored one goal and claimed a pair of assists in his two substitute outings for the first team since signing from Newcastle Benfield last month, but is now likely to be suspended for Saturday's Conference trip to Dagenham.

City's ten men lost to second-half goals from Danny Anderson and Ged Dalton with an Alex Rhodes equaliser sandwiched in between.

Midfielder Mark Convery, returning to action after a broken foot, had earlier seen a headed goal disallowed and completed 80 minutes on his comeback.
