Paul Omo Mukairu is out of Sunday’s derby between his club Antalyaspor and Alanyaspor as he has to serve out a one-match ban after he picked up his fourth booking of the season.
Mukairu, a hard working midfielder, winger or striker, was booked for the fourth time in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw at championship-chasing Trabzonspor.
He caused the penalty for Trabzonspor to lead 2-1 before Antalyaspor fought back to salvage a draw.
Mukairu has enjoyed a remarkable debut season in the Turkish top flight.
He has played 29 games in all competitions and scored four goals.
For Antalyaspor, Sunday’s clash against neighbours Alanyaspor will afford them a chance to avenge their ouster from the Turkey FA Cup in the semifinal.
