Newcastle's Alan Smith has received a two-match ban for his sending off at Manchester United on Saturday.
Smith was shown a straight red card against his old club in the final stages of his sides 6-0 thrashing at Old Trafford.
The FA has imposed a two-game ban which will see Smith ruled out of the upcoming fixtures against Stoke and Bolton.
The managerless Magpies will also be without fellow midfielder Nicky Butt for the next two fixtures.
The former Red Devils man picked up his 10th yellow card of the season during Newcastle's first match against the Potters.
