Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has accepted an Football Assocation misconduct charge.
• Toon confirm Europa absentees
Pardew, 51, received the charge after pushing assistant referee Peter Kirkup during Saturday's 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of Newcastle's Europa League play-off tie against FC Atromitos of Greece, Pardew confirmed he had accepted the charge, and was awaiting the outcome.
"We have to do the procedure that has to take place and we are following that through," Pardew said. "We are doing a letter on my call on what I thought happened at the weekend.
"But we have pleaded guilty and we will go to see the FA and see what punishment is going to come to fruition."
