Fergie to miss Pompey and Spurs

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be in the dugout at Old Trafford on Saturday when his side face Everton.

The Football Association have confirmed Ferguson's two-match touchline ban does not start until 14 days after the disciplinary panel hearing, which was held last week.

It means Ferguson will be in the stand on November 28 when United face Portsmouth at Fratton Park and then during the Carling Cup tie with Tottenham.

Ferguson was given a four-match touchline ban, of which two are suspended until the end of the 2010-11 season, after admitting a charge of improper conduct.

The charge related to media comments made about Alan Wiley following United's match against Sunderland at Old Trafford in October when he questioned the referee's fitness.
