Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman has been charged with misconduct by the FA after an incident during their clash with Swindon Town.

The FA have announced that Coleman has been charged with misconduct for an incident during their match against Swindon, which saw him sent off at half-time.

With Swindon leading 2-0 at the break at the Wham Stadium, the Stanley manager confronted referee Sebastien Stockbridge and was shown a red card, meaning he could not be on the touchline during the second half.



In a statement, the FA have now announced that Coleman has been charged with misconduct and now has until Wednesday 6 December to respond to the charge.

The statement said: "It's alleged that John Coleman acted in an improper manner and/or used insulting and/or abusive words and/ or behaviour towards a match official during half time in the tunnel area."

Town earned their first away win since August during the game, taking home a 4-3 victory from Lancashire. However, the victory proved to be very hard work as despite leading by four goals at the end of 90 minutes, the hosts scored three in injury time and had another chance cleared off the line before the final whistle blew.
