The visitors were leading 3-1 with 20 minutes to go when Meyler collided with Pardew in attempting to retrieve the ball off the pitch as the hosts chased the game.

The Newcastle manager pushed his head into Meyler's face, and, following a melee, referee Kevin Friend sent off Pardew while Meyler was booked..

Pardew was fined 100,000 pounds by his club and apologised later following widespread criticism. He is expected to receive a lengthy ban following the incident but has requested a personal hearing to explain his case.
