St Johnstone have accepted the two-match ban given to striker Brian Graham for diving to win a penalty.

Graham won and converted the spot-kick in a 1-0 win over Inverness CT, going down as goalkeeper Dean Brill slid out at his feet.

The player had until Wednesday to respond to the Scottish FA compliance officer's notice of complaint.

He was charged with "causing a match official to make an incorrect decision by committing an act of simulation".

Graham, 27, was already due to miss the clash with Dundee United on Saturday under the terms of his loan agreement from Tannadice.

He will now also have to sit out the trip to Pittodrie on New Year's Day to play Aberdeen.

Meanwhile. Saints midfielder Dylan Easton has joined Arbroath on an emergency loan until 22 January.
