SANDY, Utah (ABC 4 Sports) - Real Salt Lake defender Chris Wingert has been suspended an extra game and fined by the MLS Disciplinary Committee for violent conduct in the first minute of RSL’s July 20 loss to Sporting Kansas City.

Wingert received a yellow card on the play, but the Committee unanimously determined that his actions endangered the safety of his opponent, Sporting Kansas City forward Kei Kamara. Wingert is suspended for two games – one for receiving two yellow cards in Saturday’s game, and one imposed by the Committee. Wingert will miss RSL’s Saturday match at the New York Red Bulls and its Aug. 3 contest at the Colorado Rapids while serving his suspension. He will be eligible to return to MLS play on yellow card accumulation warning on Aug. 10, when RSL will host the Houston Dynamo at Rio Tinto Stadium. Wingert will also be eligible for the Claret-and-Cobalt’s Aug. 7 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Semifinal match against the Portland Timbers.

Real Salt Lake will return to MLS action this Saturday, when it will take on Eastern Conference power the New York Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena. Saturday’s match will kick at 5:00 p.m. MT and will be broadcast live on ABC 4 Utah.
