In-form Ghana midfielder Prince Abankwah Buaben has been suspended for one game in the Scottish Championship due to yellow cards accumulation.

The Hearts of Midlothian holding midfielder was booked for the sixth time in the Championship this season during his side’s defeat by Falkirk.

Buaben has been Hearts’ midfield mainstay this season alongside Morgaro Gomis, but will sit out in the February 7 match at the Energy Assets Arena against Livingston.

He was cautioned in the 79th minute of last Saturday’s game for a late tackle on Falkirk’s Rory Loy.

Buaben is, however, available for today’s teatime fixture against Alloa.
