Sean Dyche will take charge of his 300th Premier League game as a manager against Manchester City today, but he won’t be on the touchline for this game.
Dyche is currently serving a one-game ban, having accumulated three yellow cards this season.
Speaking about his ban, Dyche said: “I think there should be a bit more tolerance.
“The fourth official is there and if deep down they are thinking the referee might have that one wrong, I don’t see why you are booked for it.
“That’s the moment when they should use a bit of their game understanding and say ‘OK, he maybe got that one wrong but we need you to stay in the technical area’.
“I think that can be a calming down moment.”
Dyche has only won one of his 19 games as a manager against Manchester City in all competitions (D2, L16).
