Hull boss Steve Bruce has accepted a written apology from his Newcastle counterpart Alan Pardew over the head-butting incident which marred their Barclays Premier League clash at the KC Stadium two weeks ago.
Pardew was handed a seven-match ban and a cumulative £160,000 fine after admitting an FA misconduct charge relating to a touch-line fracas with Tigers midfielder David Meyler.
The Newcastle boss revealed on Thursday he had sent a letter to Bruce apologising for his actions, and Bruce says he is now keen to draw a line under the incident.
