Yeovil Town manager Darren Way would appear to be set to spend tonight's League Two game against Oldham Athletic sat in the stands. Rather unusually the home side have announced his suspension, which will have come as a result of his red card received against Cheltenham Town last Tuesday night at Whaddon Road.
As yet, neither the Football Association (who have a habit of not documenting lower league disciplinary issues until long after the event) nor Yeovil Town have confirmed any charge for Way, or disciplinary outcome. However, in the Latics match preview for tonight's match, they state:
"Yeovil manager Darren Way will also be in stands as he serves a touchline ban."
The touchline ban does not cover pre-match or post-match interviews, and will allow access to the dressing room area. Oldham do not state the length of ban. During the Cheltenham Town match, first team coach Paul Terry acted as the 'front man' in the dugout.
Way was sent off following his reaction to the red card issued to Tom James during the 21st minute of the 1-0 defeat at Whaddon Road. James will serve the second game of four during tonight's game, whilst Craig Alcock will also sit out tonight's match, due to his red card received during Saturday's 1-3 defeat against Grimsby Town.
