JIM Magilton will be in the dug-out yelling instruction to his players in the sudden-death Sunday clash with Hull City after escaping a touchline ban today.
The Blues boss was handed a season-long suspended two-match ban and fined after pleading guilty to a misconduct charge at a FA hearing in London.
Magilton put forward his mitigation at a personal hearing after being sent to the stands by Cheshire official Mike Jones during Town's 1-0 loss at Stoke City in February.

Magilton now has to keep his nose clean until May 2009 or the two-match ban will be implemented, along with any other punishment.
