Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye was on Wednesday handed a three-match ban after being found guilty of violent conduct in Saturday's FA Cup defeat at Brighton.

Cabaye had denied deliberately kicking out at Albion defender Adam El-Abd at the Amex Stadium and contested the FA charge.

But a regulatory commission found him guilty and he will now miss Wednesday's Barclays Premier League game at Blackburn and the upcoming matches against Aston Villa and Tottenham.
