Kenny faces suspension for banned drug.

Sheffield United Goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has been suspended for testing positive for the banned drug ephedrine, according to the club on Tuesday.
The urine sample provided by Kenny after May's play-off semi-final against Preston North End was found to have traces of the drug, and now Kenny faces a ban.

'We can confirm that Paddy Kenny has been suspended by the club. This is an ongoing, confidential matter and as such we are unable to comment further,' a Sheffield United spokesman said:.

Kenny, a Republic of Ireland international, now faces an FA disciplinary inquiry and could face a suspension of up to two years.
Ephedrine is on the list of the World Anti-Doping Agency's banned substances.
But there is a light at the end of the tunnel, for ephedrine is found in some treatments for the common cold and the positive test doesn't mean a straight 2 year ban.
