Stanley midfielder Sam Finley has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association.

It follows an incident in the 80th minute of Saturday’s game against Charlton Athletic on Saturday which was not seen by the match officials but caught on camera.

It is alleged the standard punishment of three matches that would otherwise apply would be insufficient.

Finley has until 6pm tomorrow to respond to that charge.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Jonathan Maxted has had his suspension withdrawn with immediate effect after an Independent Regulatory Commission upheld his claim of wrongful dismissal.

He was sent off for violent conduct in the 82nd minute of the 1-0 defeat at Charlton following a clash with Addicks striker Lyle Taylor.

The decision means that Maxted will be available to play against Derby County Saturday’s FA Cup fourth round tie.

Maxted's red card at the weekend meant new signing Dimitar Evtimov was handed his debut just hours after signing for the club as Stanley lost to a controversial injury time penalty.

Striker Taylor also appealed against his red card, but saw that dismissed by the FA and he will now serve a three match suspension, starting with Saturday's trip to Peterborough United.
