​Burnley defender Tarkowski accepts THREE match ban

Burnley defender James Tarkowski has accepted a charge of violent conduct and will serve a three-match ban with immediate effect.

The 25-year-old was charged after swinging his arm into Brighton striker Glenn Murray's chest during Saturday's 0-0 draw in the Premier League.

Although Tarkowski accepted the charge, he argued the three-game ban was excessive - a claim rejected by a Football Association panel.
