Joey Barton has been banned from the touchline for one match with immediate effect for a breach of FA Rule E3.

The Cod Army head coach admitted that his language towards a match official in the 69th minute of Sunday’s League One fixture against Bristol Rovers was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper and/or implied bias and he also accepted the standard penalty.

He will not be on the touchline for the New Year’s Day clash with Sunderland at Highbury.
