NEWCASTLE United Jack Colback is a booking away from a two-game ban.
The midfielder has been shown nine yellow cards so far this season.
And one more caution would trigger a automatic suspension for Colback, set to face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium tomorrow.
Colback must avoid being booked between now and April 12, when the yellow cards are wiped out, to escape a ban.
The 25-year-old was booked in last week’s 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace.
