Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is expected to be handed a three-match touchline ban by the Football Association later today for his push on assistant referee Stuart Burt.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is expected to be handed a three-match touchline ban by the Football Association.

The 51-year-old was sent to the stands during the Magpies' 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday for pushing assistant referee Stuart Burt.

Pardew said: "I'm still embarrassed about what I did. I've never done anything like that before.

"I've apologised to him and I can't really do any more than that."

FA officials will examine referee Martin Atkinson's match report later today before deciding whether to charge the Toon boss.
