Demons' Miller takes two-match penalty

Melbourne key defender Brad Miller will accept his two-match AFL suspension for the front-on bump that left Adelaide's Ken McGregor dazed.

The Demons decided to accept the match review panel's decision, rather than take the case to the tribunal Tuesday night and risk a three-match suspension.

The report from Friday night's game was the fourth time this season Miller had been booked, although he had not missed any games until now.

Miller was always going to be in trouble for the incident where he made contact with McGregor's head while the Crow was bent over the ball.

The AFL said at the start of the season it would be cracking down on such contact.

West Coast also has tribunal concerns ahead of Saturday's big home game against St Kilda.

Adam Hunter and Phil Matera could accept one-match penalties for early guilty pleas after they were booked for striking.

Hunter was reported for striking Hawthorn forward Mark Williams, while Matera was booked for striking Michael Osborne.

Matera is likely to receive a two-match ban if he contests the charge and loses, while Hunter would still only be banned for one game.

The news was better for Eagles full-forward Quinten Lynch, who will escape with a reprimand if he takes an early guilty plea for charging Hawk Campbell Brown.
