Hearts: David Templeton receives a two match ban for violent conduct

Highlights - Hibernian 1-1 Hearts

Hearts' David Templeton has accepted a two-match ban from the Scottish Football Association's compliance officer for violent conduct.

Templeton was accused of kicking out at Hibernian's James McPake during Sunday's Edinburgh derby at Easter Road, which ended 1-1.

He was cited under Disciplinary Rule 200 (Violent Conduct).

The winger is subsequently suspended for league matches against Inverness and Aberdeen.

Templeton broke free with the ball early in the first half of Sunday's draw and McPake brought the Hearts man down outside the Hibernian penalty area.

However, referee Willie Collum failed to take action against Templeton's reaction to the tackle, with television evidence appearing to show him lashing out at McPake from a prostrate position on the pitch.
