ROMAIN Vincelot will be coming back to Valley Parade next season after his new club Stevenage won a relegation reprieve.

An independent arbitration panel upheld the EFL’s appeal against the outcome of a disciplinary commission’s verdict against Macclesfield for misconduct charges.

The panel confirmed the two-point suspended penalty activated on June 19 will stand – and a further four points will be taken off the club immediately and applied to the 2019-2020 table.

It means that Macclesfield finished bottom on 19 points – sending them down to the National League while Stevenage, who won only three times all season, live to fight again.

City did the double over Stevenage last season, giving Stuart McCall his first victory since returning to the helm in February.

His former Bantams skipper Vincelot joined Stevenage last month after being released by Shrewsbury.
