Garry Monk: Guided Leeds into play-off spots

Leeds manager Garry Monk is to serve an immediate one-match touchline ban and has been fined £2,000 after admitting an FA misconduct charge.

During his team’s 1-0 defeat at Bristol City last month, Monk was sent to the stands by referee Keith Stroud following an 88th-minute outburst. The ban will be served during Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship trip to Derby.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner has received the same fine – but no ban – after he also accepted a misconduct charge, the FA announced on its official Twitter account.

The governing body considered his behaviour at the end of Town’s recent 1-0 defeat at Reading to have amounted to improper conduct. Huddersfield saw midfielder Rajiv van La Parra sent off in that match and four other players booked.
