Three Bristol City players have been jailed following a brawl outside a city centre nightclub last year.
Leyton Orient's David Partridge, who is on loan from City, has been given a two-month sentence while Steve Brooker and Bradley Orr have both been jailed for 28 days.
Partridge admitted affray and causing actual bodily harm during the altercation last October with Brooker and Orr both admitting their part in the affray.
Violence flared after Wales international Partridge was ejected from the Romeo Browns nightspot in Bristol city centre. The 27-year-old became involved in a fight with the club's doormen before his then team-mates joined in.
A fourth player, Scott Brown, has been ordered to do 100 hours of community service after admitting a Section 4 Public Order Act offence.
The loss of Brooker will be a major blow for The Robins as he now misses virtually their entire September fixture list, a total of six League One matches.
