Craig Hignett was appointed Hartlepool United manager in February

Hartlepool United manager Craig Hignett has been banned from the touchline for three games following his dismissal in September's 1-1 draw at Plymouth.

Hignett, who has also been warned of his future conduct by the Football Association, protested to referee Gavin Ward after the award of a late penalty.

Under the ban terms, Hignett can enter the dressing room before and after matches, but not the technical area.

He misses games against Crawley Town, Carlisle United and Leyton Orient.
