The pair left their technical areas and clashed following a heavy challenge by Barry Bannan on Filipe Morais.

And Carvalhal, who was also sent off at Aston Villa last March, was then engaged in a heated discussion with a steward as he attempted to take a seat behind the dug-out.

A statement, released on the Football Association’s website today, read: “Carlos Carvalhal will serve a two-match touchline ban with immediate effect following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Thursday [7 September 2017].

“The Sheffield Wednesday manager was charged for misconduct in relation to his behaviour in the 88th minute of the EFL Cup game against Bolton Wanderers on 22 August 2017. The charge was designated as a non-standard case as this was Mr Carvalhal’s second misconduct charge within 12 months.

“Mr Carvalhal, who partially admitted the charge and requested a personal hearing, was also fined £4,000. Bolton manager Phil Parkinson was fined £2,000 after admitting misconduct during the same fixture and accepted the standard penalty.
