Paul in the stands tonight for Gillingham visit after FA act on red card

Paul Lambert will watch tonight’s game against Gillingham from the stands after being handed a one match touchline ban.

The Town boss was shown a red card by referee Kevin Johnson at the end of Saturday’s defeat at Lincoln after venting his frustrations at the performance of the official.

Paul has accepted a charge of improper conduct from the Football Association and will serve the touchline ban at Portman Road this evening as well as being fined £1000.

Town and Lincoln have also been charged with failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion after a flare up following Jon Nolan’s dismissal for a foul on Harry Anderson in added on time.

Both clubs have until Thursday, 29 October to provide a statement of defence.

Jon misses tonight’s game as the first of a three match suspension, which also sees him sidelined for Saturday’s home game against Crewe and next week’s visit to Sunderland.
