Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is expected to plead guilty to his improper conduct charge.
Pardew has until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the Football Association’s charge which followed his headbutt on Hull City’s David Meyler last Saturday.
Pardew apologised immediately after the match, and was fined £100,000 by Newcastle. The police have confirmed that they will not be bringing charges as neither Hull or Meyler lodged a complaint.
But the FA are expected to take a tough line with Pardew and he could be facing a long touchline ban and fine.
When the FA charged Pardew they said: ”Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has been charged in relation to an incident in his side’s game against Hull City on March 1, 2014.
“It is alleged that in the 72nd minute of the fixture, Pardew was involved in an incident with a Hull City player that amounted to improper conduct.
“Due to the serious violent and/or aggressive nature of the reported behaviour, this case has been designated as non-standard.
“Pardew has until 6pm on Thursday, March 6 2014 to respond to the charge.”
