Garry Monk has been charged by the FA for his conduct after his sending off at Bristol City last Tuesday. The Leeds United head coach was sent to “the stands” after getting frustrated with the officials in the 1-0 defeat. The reason I say “stands” is because he literally sat behind the dugout right next to where he was standing.
Monk is expected to plead guilty to the charge which would mean he was in the stands in the next fixture, away to Derby County on October 15th. Pep Clotet and James Beattie will be on the bench and will probably be linked to Monk via phone.
Who will be in the opposition dugout is another matter entirely. Nigel Pearson is currently suspended after a disagreement with the Derby owner and Chris Powell is in temporary charge until the issue is shorted.
