Lee Bowyer’s three-game touchline ban will force Charlton boss into the stands for games against Derby, Bristol City and West Brom


Lee Bowyer has been hit with a three-match touchline ban after admitting an FA charge.

The Charlton Athletic manager has also been fined £4,000.

Bowyer will have to watch Saturday’s home game against Derby County from the stand as well as the away fixtures at Bristol City on Tuesday and the following weekend’s trip to West Bromwich Albion.

The FA had charged Bowyer with improper conduct and/or questioning the integrity of a match official. The incident took place during the EFL Championship fixture between Charlton Athletic and Swansea City on October 2.

Bowyer said: “I’m surprised and disappointed with the ban. I didn’t shout or swear in my discussion with the referee but it is what it is. My focus remains making sure we are ready for Saturday’s game against Derby County.”
