Bristol Rovers boss Graham Coughlan has today indicated there will be no sanctions against the Pompey striker.

A tweet from @bbcbristolsport has stated Coughlan revealed there will be no punishment dished out, following an off-the-ball incident in Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Fratton Park.

That's after the Rovers manager accused Vaughan of punching defender Tom Lockyer in the second half of the meeting.
