West Brom midfielder Chris Brunt has been suspended for one-match and fined £8,000 after accepting a charge of abusing a match official.

The 30-year-old requested a personal hearing after being charged following an incident against Aston Villa.

It occurred around the tunnel area after the final whistle of Albion's 2-0 FA Cup defeat at Villa Park on 7 March.
