Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association for pushing an assistant referee.

Pardew shoved the official during his side's Barclays Premier League win over Tottenham on Saturday.

The Magpies boss apologised unreservedly after the match but it has not prevented the FA acting and he now has until 4pm on Thursday to respond to the charge.
