Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is set to learn his punishment for a headbutt on Hull City’s David Meyler, according to Sky Sports.

The 52-year-old is to attend a hearing in front of a three man independent regulatory commission on Tuesday as he waits to learn his fate.

Pardew accepted a misconduct charge for the incident as well as being issued a £100,000 fine and a formal warning for his actions.

The confrontation happened during the Magpies 4-1 win over Hull on 1 March when Tigers midfielder Meyler was headbutted by the boss on touchline.

Meyler was cautioned by the official for his part whilst the Newcastle boss was sent to the stands for the remainder of the game.

Pardew released a public apology shortly after the incident and is to make a personal statement on Tuesday as he looks to improve his behaviour.

The FA’s punishment is likely to include a stadium ban for the manager’s actions, a sanction which would prevent him from attending the match at all.

Pardew has already been involved in several incidents prior to the Meyler headbutt and has faced previous punishments for his behaviour.

In August 2012 the Tyneside boss was issued a £20,000 fine and two-match ban for pushing an assistant referee.

More recently he was also warned about his future conduct in January this year following an exchange with Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini when he was caught swearing on camera.
