Nottingham Forest Head Coach Philippe Montanier will serve a two match touch-line ban after being charged with improper conduct.

It relates to an incident involving the Frenchman during Forest's 2-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday last month. He will have to sit in the stands for their games against Birmingham and Blackburn.

The FA released the following statement:

Philippe Montanier will serve a two-match touchline ban with immediate effect after he was charged with misconduct following the game against Sheffield Wednesday on 24 September 2016.

It is alleged that after the game finished, the Nottingham Forest Manager, who was also fined £3,000, used abusive and/or insulting words towards a Match Official.

The charge was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.
