Jonathan Brown will front the AFL Tribunal on Tuesday evening to contest a one-match ban

THE Brisbane Lions will contest Jonathan Brown's one-match suspension in a bid to allow the champion forward to line up against Collingwood on Friday night.

Brown will face the AFL Tribunal on Tuesday evening and will risk a two-game ban if the challenge is unsuccessful.

Meanwhile North Melbourne has accepted the MRP's three-game ban for Jack Ziebell and the midfielder will miss the Kangaroos' upcoming games against Gold Coast, Fremantle and GWS.

Brown collected Jamison during the third quarter of the Lions' loss to the Blues at the Gabba on Saturday night.

The MRP assessed the incident as intentional, low impact and high contact.

Speaking on Tuesday, Brisbane coach Michael Voss said, "We are going to contest the charge on Browny. It's a bit of a gamble but we think it is worth the risk."

Richmond's Shane Edwards has accepted his misconduct charge from the MRP, a $1950 sanction for pushing Essendon's Dyson Heppell into the path of an umpire.
