One-match touchline ban for Newport County assistant McCarthy
Newport County assistant manager Sean McCarthy will serve a one-match touchline suspension after he admitted using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official.
He was charged in relation to an incident at the end of the 2-1 defeat by Luton Town on 16 August.
The Exiles were beaten by a 96th-minute penalty after Darren Jones was judged to have committed a foul, a decision which infuriated Newport County.
McCarthy must also pay a £500 fine.
The hotly-disputed stoppage time penalty was Cameron McGeehan's second successful spot-kick in a bad-tempered game at Luton.
After the incident, Newport County manager Warren Feeney said: "I think the first [penalty] was a foul but we should have dealt with it. But the last one was an absolute disgraceful decision.
"I thought our boys were absolutely outstanding. I think you could see the desire and passion and to get done by an absolute joke of a decision is heart breaking for them."
The Exiles visit Hartlepool United on Saturday as they look to climb from 17th place in the League Two table.
