Poyet to miss Chelsea clash

Posted on 3 September 2001  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Gus Poyet's three-match suspension has been confirmed by the FA and our new boy's worst fear has been realised - missing out against his former club.

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.
