FA gives Gillespie an extra one-match ban
The FA's disciplinary commission have imposed a further one-match ban on Sheffield United's Keith Gillespie, for his actions after being sent off in the Premiership match at Reading on January 20.
Gillespie had already served two matches of the automatic three-game for hitting Reading midfielder Stephen Hunt just seconds after coming off the bench at the Madejski Stadium.
The winger admitted a charge of violent conduct relating to his actions after his dismissal, when he again clashed with Hunt.
He will now miss the February 24 match at Liverpool as well as this weekend's Premiership visit of Tottenham, meaning he will be ruled out until the March 3 clash with Everton at Bramall Lane.
Elsewhere, Liverpool have been fined £14,000 and Everton £10,000 following a mass confrontation involving players of both sides in a reserve match last October.
The clubs admitted charges of failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and were warned as to their future conduct by an FA disciplinary commission today.
Those charges incurred fines of £10,000 each while Liverpool were hit with an additional £4,000 punishment on a separate charge of failing to ensure players refrained from using violent and/or threatening behaviour.
The incident occurred after Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek was sent off for his reaction to a tackle by Victor Anichebe.
Another charge of improper conduct against Dudek, brought for not leaving the field promptly, was found not proven.
Queens Park Rangers have also requested a personal hearing after being charged with failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in their FA Cup third round replay at Luton.
The club are contesting the charge.
