Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew will find out on Tuesday if he will face a stadium ban for head-butting Hull City midfielder David Meyler, according to BT Sport.
The Magpies boss will attend a hearing before a three man independent regulatory commission to find out his punishment after admitting a misconduct charge.
Rather than just a touchline ban Pardew is likely to receive a stadium ban which would mean he would be unable to attend any of his team's matches during that period.
The incident occurred during Newcastle's 4-1 win over Hull at the KC stadium on the first of March. Meyler tried to reclaim the ball from the technical area and during a bizarre exchange was head-butted by Pardew.
The manager was fined £100,000 by Newcastle which he accepted and apologised for the incident.
The commission is allowed to take the last two seasons into account when assessing Pardew which can only hurt his cause. He was warned by the FA earlier this season after aiming a foul mouthed tirade against Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini.
He also pushed an assistant referee over in August 2012 and received a £20,000 fine and a two match ban.
