Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman has been given a two-match touchline ban for misconduct after being sent off in October's match against Crawley.

The 54-year-old admitted to using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official in or around the tunnel area at half-time.

He denied, but was later found guilty, of "improper" conduct in returning to the technical area after his dismissal.

Coleman has also been fined £750 and warned over his future conduct.

Stanley drew the League Two match at Crawley 0-0 and face a trip to fourth-placed Luton Town on Saturday.
