Lowe won't appeal A-League touchline ban

Perth coach Kenny Lowe has accepted a two-match ban over his bust-up with the referees in his side's A-League match with Melbourne City.

Lowe was involved in a heated altercation with referee Alan Milliner during the half-time break in Glory's 3-2 win over City on Friday night.

City had just equalised through a penalty, but a number of Glory players unhappy with the decision.

While Lowe claimed to be the peacemaker in the incident, saying he only went on to the pitch to get his players from the field, the match review panel did not see it that way.

Sent into the stands for the second half of the clash, Lowe will have to cool his heels in the bleachers for another two weeks when Perth travel to Brisbane before hosting Western Sydney.

The coach had until lunchtime on Wednesday to appeal but opted against it.

"I admit my actions at half-time last Friday night were unacceptable and I apologise for the way I behaved," FFA quoted Lowe as saying.

"I know that I should be better. I feel like I have let everyone down at the club, especially my players, staff and our supporters."

Head of the A-League Greg O'Rourke said it wasn't acceptable for a player or coach to confront a match official in such a way.

"In saying that, we commend Kenny Lowe for acknowledging his error in judgment and look forward to seeing his passion back on the bench in two weeks," O'Rourke said.
