Gus was dismissed along with Gary Doherty in the 1-1 draw with Everton in our second game of the season. Gary was cleared of any wrongdoing, while Gus's case went before the Independent Video Advisory Panel.
A Statement on the Football Association's website reads: "The Independent Video Advisory Panel has recommended the the sending-off of Gus Poyet at Everton on August 20 was just.
"He will, therefore, serve a three-match suspension, commencing September 2."
Gus will miss the matches against Southampton, Torquay in the Worthington Cup and Chelsea.Gus: I'm not dirty
