St Johnstone boss Lomas receives one-match ban

St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas has been hit with a one-match touchline ban for an incident in his first game as boss.

The Northern Irishman has accepted the suspension which comes for his behavior during St Johnstone's scoreless draw on November 19.

"The club was offered the opportunity for the manager to attend a hearing or accept a one-match ban," read a statement from the Saints.

"Although the club is disappointed that this incident has reached the judicial panel, it has chosen to accept the one-match ban."

Lomas will now have to guide the fourth-placed Saints from the stands when they travel to Tynecastle to take on fith-placed Hearts in a crunch match on Saturday.
