Brighton striker Tomer Hemed banned for stamp on DeAndre Yedlin

Brighton's Tomer Hemed stamped on Newcastle's DeAndre Yedlin, but the incident went unnoticed by the referee.

Brighton striker Tomer Hemed has been banned for three matches after being found guilty of violent conduct in Sunday's home win over Newcastle.

Hemed, who scored the winner in a 1-0 Brighton victory, will serve a three-match ban after a retrospective violent conduct charge by the Football Association was found proven.

The Israel international was involved in a coming together with Newcastle's United States defender DeAndre Yedlin after 88 minutes, appearing to stamp on his leg.

The FA charged him with "an alleged act of violent conduct which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video."

Hemed contested the charge, but a hearing on Wednesday ruled against him.

A statement from the FA said: "Tomer Hemed will serve a three-match suspension with immediate effect after a violent conduct charge against him was found proven.

"The player denied the charge. However, it was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing."

The ban means Brighton will be without Hemed for Sunday's trip to Arsenal and games against Everton and West Ham.

They posted a short statement on their official website, confirming the ruling and suspension and adding that there would be "no further comment at this stage."

Brighton boss Chris Hughton had defended Hemed after the game, saying the incident had been purely accidental.

"I have seen it, and my absolute impression was that there was no intention, particularly knowing the player," Hughton said.
