Hythe Town manager Scott Porter handed four-game touchline ban
Scott Porter has been handed a
four-game touchline ban after admitting an FA misconduct
The sanction follows the Hythe boss
being dismissed from the dug-out for comments to referee Nick Dunn
during the 1-1 draw at Maidstone early last month, and begins on
Porter (pictured) has overseen the
club’s rapid climb from bottom to joint-top since that night at the
Gallagher Stadium, which was completed by the 4-3 win at Worthing
Four first-half goals in the space
of 26 minutes – two by skipper Dave Cook – did the damage but
Porter had reservations about his team’s defending.
He admitted: "It was definitely one
for the neutrals. We were terrible in the first 10 minutes, and for
all three goals, with people not doing their jobs."
Now they are top, Porter maintains
they are there to be shot at by all their rivals.
He said: "We have to concentrate
and keep our feet on the ground. We have worked very hard to get
where we are. You pick up a lot of momentum with the sort of run we
have had, but our away form has been better than at home."
Hythe are at home to Ramsgate on
Saturday but will be without defender Craig Cloke who serves a
one-match ban after collecting five bookings.
