Newcastle manager Alan Pardew will learn whether he faces a stadium ban for head-butting Hull City midfielder David Meyler, according to the Guardian.

The Toon boss is set to have a personal hearing in front of a three-man independent regulatory commission, which will decide on the punishment for his misconduct charge, which Pardew has already admitted.

The 52-year-old is expected to issue a statement detailing his contrition over the incident, and outlining the steps he will take to improve his behaviour on the touchline.

There have been suggestions Pardew will take an anger management course, but that will be entirely his own choice, with the panel having no power to order him to do so.

The commission is likely to take into account the incident in which Pardew was given a two game ban and fined £20,000 for pushing an assistant referee in August 2012, as the incident occurred within the last two seasons.

Pardew was also warned about his conduct in January this year, after a heated exchange with Manuel Pellegrini, in which he was caught swearing at the Manchester City boss.

Pardew issued an apology following the Meyler incident, whilst Newcastle fined him £100,000 and giving an official warning on his future behaviour.
