The USL released its weekly discipline report today — and Pittsburgh Riverhounds midfielder Kevin Kerr will have to sit out another game.
Kerr was issued a red card following a first-half tackle against Orlando City B’s Tyler Turner as the Hounds’ dropped Friday’s match 2-1.
Kerr will miss Pittsburgh’s road match against Louisville City FC on Wednesday at Slugger Field, despite the team’s contention with the card.  Head Coach Mark Steffens said after the game on Friday that the team would appeal the suspension.
We’ll have a preview of the game in a mid-week edition of “Breaking Down the Hounds” on Wednesday morning.
Among ongoing disciplinary action, Charleston’s Zach Prince will be serving the second of his two-game suspension on Saturday when the Battery host Pittsburgh.
The Rochester Rhinos’ Steevan dos Santos also is serving the second game of his suspension when Rochester hosts the Harrisburg City Islanders on Saturday.
LA Galaxy II midfielder Bryam Rebellon was sent off following a second-half scuffle during Los Dos’ 2-2 draw against Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2 on Friday. Rebellon is suspended for Saturday’s road game against Rio Grande Valley FC.
