There will be no repercussions for Scott Fraser following his 'behaviour and performance' issues on Saturday against Doncaster Rovers.

The Scottish midfielder, who has scored 11 goals for Dons this season, was withdrawn after 29 minutes and reacted angrily in the stand behind the dugout in the immediate aftermath, throwing his bottle across the empty stand.

Russell Martin explained the reason behind the substitution was not tactical afterwards, and has spoken with Fraser since the game and both have cleared the air.

"We had a good chat and it's all good," said Martin. "He trained brilliantly yesterday (Monday), really well.

"It's something that happened, he has apologised. He regrets what happened, as do I. It's not ideal but I do love him, he's a great guy, a fantastic player and he's a really important part of what we're doing.

"I've got no issues with Scott whatsoever moving forward and the way he has responded has been brilliant."
