Nana Ampomah has been handed a two-match ban with immediate effect for allegedly pushing a referee after Waasland-Beveren's 3-2 defeat to KV Kortrijk which got him sent off.

Ampomah also has one-match suspended ban hanging over him.

The Federal Prosecutor's Office initially wanted a suspension of four match days and a 4,000 euro fine.

But after extensive apologies from Ampomah, the Disputes Committee decided to mitigate.

The final verdict was two matches effective and one suspended plus a fine of 2,500 euros.

Ampomah started serving his ban on Saturday against Royal Union Saint-Gilloise and Beveren lost 5-1.

He will complete serving his ban after next Saturday's home clash against Cercle Brugge in the playoffs.
