Alan Devonshire admits he's finding his three-game touchline ban a real headache.
The punishment was held over from last season after Devonshire berated the ref following his Hampton & Richmond Borough side's Blue Square South play-off final defeat.
And Dev for one cannot understand those managers who CHOOSE to sit in the stands at times rather than be pitch-side.
He said: "I like to be down in the dug-out, close to the players and close to the action. "I've found it very frustrating being in the stands and can't wait to get back there."
Devonshire had to bite his tongue to avoid further punishment after Ian Hodges had a perfectly good goal disallowed for offside in Tuesday night's 0-0 draw with Bognor Regis. He said: "He was three yards onside,I don't know what those linesmen are watching sometimes. That would have put us 3-0 up and it would've been a different game."
The Beavers had begun their season with a 1-1 draw at Basingstoke Town on Saturday, in which Lawrence Yaku netted.
They host Weston-Super-Mare on Saturday, after which a free evening of entertainment at Beveree will mark the official launch of the club's new Supporters' Trust.
Dev added: "Weston-Super-Mare have won their first two games, so it will be tough." The Beavers boss is still running the rule over ex-Aston Villa midfielder Stephen Cook.
