Leeds United manager faces one match ban

Leeds United manager Garry Monk faces a one match touchline ban, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Garry Monk was sent to the stands during Leeds United’s loss to Bristol City at Ashton Gate last Tuesday, and is planning on pleading guilty to an FA charge of misconduct.

The Yorkshire Evening Post believes that the likely punishment will be a touchline ban for one game and will be immediately enforced.

This means that he will have to watch the away clash against Derby from the stands at the iPro Stadium.

Monk was dismissed from the touchline by referee Keith Stroud towards the end of a midweek trip to Bristol City as Leeds eventually lost 1-0 to the Robins.

Both Monk and Bristol City manager Lee Johnson played down the sending off at the time but it appears that the FA have subsequently charged him.

The FA and Leeds United have not made an official comment on the story yet.

It is understood that assistant manager Pep Clotet will take charge for the game against Derby County in Monk’s absence.

Leeds United fans – what do you think? Is this punishment fair? How will you fare without Monk on the touchline?
