Newcastle boss Alan Pardew says he will spend more time sitting down and less time on the touchline after being sent off for head-butting Hull City’s David Meyler in the Toon’s 4-1 win at the KC Stadium.

Pardew and Meyler came together after a scrap over a loose ball on the touchline and the the Magpies boss was quickly sent to stands after the coming together, which also resulted in a yellow card for Meyler.

FA chief Greg Dyke has already confirmed the governing body will investigate the incident, which is likely to leave Pardew facing a ban and hefty fine.
