The caution means that the combative full back will sit out the trip to Spurs through suspension.

"That was my fifth of the season and I've been told it's the Tottenham game I'll miss," said Griffin.

"I'm a player who is going to pick up bookings - perhaps I'll pick up the odd red card as well now and again. Luckily enough I've not yet.

"But that's the way I play and I'm not going to change for anybody. I'll miss the Spurs game but hopefully be back in."
