Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye has labelled his three-match ban from the Football Association as an 'injustice'.
Cabaye was handed the ban for kicking out at Brighton's Adam El-Abd during Newcastle's FA Cup fourth-round defeat last weekend.
The Frenchman had denied deliberately clashing with El-Abd at the Amex Stadium and contested the FA charge without success.
As a result Cabaye was forced to miss Wednesday's win over Blackburn and he will also miss the upcoming matches against Aston Villa and Tottenham.
The former Lille man reacting to the ban, tweeted: "A three-match ban is a real injustice but life goes on. I trust in my team-mates."
