McMahon was booked in the first half of their 0-0 draw with Carlisle United on Monday.

The defender has now picked up two suspensions under the totting up system this season.

Both suspensions have come in the final week of that periods totting up system to make things even more frustrating.

McMahon served a one-match suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season on Boxing Day with the first period ending on December 31st.

The left back only had to avoid a caution in the game with Carlisle and Saturday`s game with Walsall to avoid a two-match suspension.

McMahon will miss the trip to Walsall on Saturday as well as the home game with Crawley Town on Tuesday night.

Kevin McDonald is the only other United player in danger of suspension and he must avoid a yellow card at Walsall on Saturday, as he is currently on nine yellow cards for the season.
