Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has been given a three-game ban after being found guilty of violent conduct.

Austin denied the incident, which was caught on camera but not picked up by the match officials at the time.

He will now miss Saturday’s visit of Sheffield Wednesday as well as trips to Rotherham and Middlesbrough.

“An independent Regulatory Commission found the breach of FA Rule E1.1 proven after considering evidence during a subsequent hearing and imposed the appropriate sanction,” a Football Association statement said.

Austin, who re-joined QPR on loan from Premier League side West Bromwich Albion in January, has scored six goals in 17 appearances.
