Derby’s Bradley Johnson has been charged with violent conduct by the FA.
It follows a clash with Stoke City’s Joe Allen during last night's 2-1 defeat.
He has until 6pm on 30th November to respond.
Here's the FA statement in full:
"Derby County’s Bradley Johnson has been charged with violent conduct.
It follows an incident with Stoke City’s Joe Allen during yesterday’s game [Wednesday 28 November 2018] which was not seen by the match officials but caught on camera.
It is alleged that the standard punishment of three matches that would otherwise apply is clearly insufficient.
Johnson has until 6pm on Friday 30 November 2018 to respond to the charge.
On-field incidents which are not seen at the time are referred by The FA to a panel of three former elite match officials.
For The FA to bring a charge, the decision of the panel must be unanimous."
