Calvin Andrew has been given a 12-match ban with immediate effect following an incident which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.
The player was involved in an act of violent conduct in or around the 77th minute of the game against Oldham Athletic on 29 October 2016.
Furthermore, it was alleged that the standard punishment of three matches that would otherwise apply would be clearly insufficient.
The player admitted his behaviour constituted violent conduct but denied the clearly insufficient element of the charge.
However, this was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today [Friday 4 November 2016].
