SFA to review Goodwin challenge on Armstrong

Vincent Lunny, the Scottish Football Association's compliance officer, is expected to study Jim Goodwin's controversial display against Dundee United.

The St Mirren captain was withdrawn just before half-time during his side's Boxing Day victory in Paisley.

His involvement was curtailed after just 43 minutes but Goodwin had already caught United's Stuart Armstrong with an alleged forearm smash, an incident which went unpunished by the referee Bobby Madden. However, Goodwin is at risk of being cited retrospectively by the SFA as it is now understood that Lunny is preparing to examine footage from that challenge.

Lunny has acted on such evidence already this season, having cited United's Gavin Gunning for violent conduct after the defender was shown kicking out at Celtic's Virgil van Dijk in a televised league match.
