TORONTO -- The Montreal Impact will be without their coach when they face Toronto FC after Marco Schallibaum was given a one-game suspension by Major League Soccer.

The MLS disciplinary committee hit Schallibaum with his third suspension of the season Wednesday after the Swiss coach stepped onto the field during the Impact's home loss to Colorado on Saturday.

The Impact say they tried to appeal the ban, as Schallibaum was not ejected from the game or sanctioned by the referee for the incident.

Impact assistant coach Philippe Eullaffroy was also suspended for one game for throwing the ball in the direction of Rapids midfielder Tony Cascio.

Assistant coach Mauro Biello will replace Schallibaum for Wednesday's game.
