Hughes in hot water with FA

22 November 2012

Notts County striker Lee Hughes has been charged with violent conduct and handed a three-match suspension following retrospective action from the Football Association.

The charge comes after Scunthorpe asked the FA to review the video of the npower League One fixture between the two clubs at Glanford Park last Saturday, when Hughes is shown to elbow home defender Tom Newey.

Iron boss Brian Laws was furious the forward, 36, was not punished by match referee Eddie Ilderton at the time, calling the incident "clear".

Hughes went on to score a late goal to rescue a 2-2 draw for his side, having also scored in the first half.

He will now miss County's league games against Swindon and Yeovil and also their FA Cup second-round tie against Rotherham.
