HARTLEPOOL United boss John Hughes will serve a two-game touchline ban following a misconduct charge relating to his sending-off against Coventry City last month.

The Scot attended a hearing at Wembley Stadium on Thursday where he was found guilty of the charge having been sent-off at half-time during the game at The Ricoh Arena on 16th March.

The ban takes immediate effect which means Hughes will watch from the stands for the final game of the season at Crawley Town on Saturday.
