Tamas accepts FA violent conduct charge
West Brom defender Gabriel Tamas will serve a three match ban with immediate effect after accepting an FA charge of violent misconduct for his role in the incident that left James Vaughan with a gashed lip.
Vaughan was forced to visit a plastic surgeon just hours after the unsavoury elbow incident in the closing stages of the Canaries' 1-0 Premier League home defeat on Sunday.
Baggies' boss Roy Hodgson had insisted the late flashpoint inside the West Brom penalty box was 'unintentional' - but Hodgson will now be without his Romanian defender for the next three games.
Tamas escaped any punishment from match official Mark Halsey on the day itself, although the referee has since confirmed he would have red carded the centre back if he had seen the incident.
The 27-year-old will now miss this weekend's Premier League trip to Swansea along with a Carling Cup tie at Everton and Fulham's league visit to the Hawthorns.
Norwich have made no official comment since the weekend, but chief executive David McNally used his personal Twitter account on Monday to insist any retrospective ban wouldn't help Norwich City.
