City's Barry banned for one game



Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry has been banned for one game for abusing a match official at the end of the Premier League derby defeat by Manchester United last weekend, the FA said in a statement on Thursday.

Barry decided not to contest a charge of using foul and abusive language during champions City's 3-2 defeat and will miss Saturday's trip to Newcastle United.

The England international was also fined 8 000 pounds ($12 900) by the FA.
