The 56-year-old will be absent from the touchline on Tuesday night after being punished for his behaviour
Steve Evans has become the first manager in English football to be suspended under new Football Association misconduct rules.
The Peterborough boss will be banned for the touchline for Tuesday night’s League One clash against AFC Wimbledon after receiving four yellow cards this term.
The new bookings system was introduced in the Football League at the start of this season in a bid to curb abusive behaviour by managers.
Referees are permitted to award managers a yellow card for dissent, with a second booking leading to a red card.
A straight red card can also be awarded in cases of serious abuse towards match officials or rival coaches and players.
Evans received yellow cards for his conduct in Peterborough’s match at Charlton on August 21, with Gillingham on September 21 and against Accrington on October 20.
His fourth indescretion, triggering the suspension, came in last Friday’s 1-1 draw with Coventry.

Evans’ assistant Paul Raynor is currently on three yellow cards.
