Former Hammer Steve Lomas has received a touchline ban from the Scottish FA - after his first game in charge of St Johnstone.
Lomas - who was confirmed as the new Saints manager at the start of November - was censured by the SFA after he was accused of misconduct for an incident during the game.
As a result, the 37-year-old former reserve team manager, who previously played for West Ham between 1997 and 2004 has had a one-match touchline ban imposed.
The news was confirmed by Lomas' new club in statement this morning. "Steve Lomas will be missing from the dugout for Saturday’s game against Hearts at Tynecastle," it read.
"The club was contacted by the SFA’s Judicial Panel following our game against Rangers at Ibrox on 19th November regarding a report of alleged misconduct by the new Saints Manager which was brought to their attention by the Police Match Commander.
"The Club was offered the opportunity for the manager to attend a hearing or accept a one match ban. Although the Club is disappointed that this incident has reached the Judicial Panel, it has chosen to accept the ban."
Lomas' two games in charge of the Saints thus far have resulted in one win (3-1 Hibs) and a draw (0-0 at Rangers).
