David Templeton accepts two match ban for violent conduct


The Scottish FA had issued a notice of complaint this morning against Templeton, after compliance officer Vincent Lunny judged that the Hearts midfielder was adjudged to have kicked out at Hibs player James McPake during the first Edinburgh derby of the season which ended 1-1.

A hearing was set to take place on Thursday 16th August, however the player has accepted an offer of a two match ban and he will serve that with immediate effect.

Templeton will now miss the home tie against Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Saturday 18th August and also the away match against Aberdeen on Sunday 26th August.
