Chesterfield striker Jack Lester has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association.

The charge follows an alleged incident in the 84th minute of Saturday's game against Walsall.

It has been brought under Law 12 which relates to incidents not seen by match officials but caught on video, but no date for a hearing has yet been set.

Chesterfield have decided not to contest the charge, so Lester now faces an automatic three-match ban.

It means he will miss away fixtures at Huddersfield and Scunthorpe and the home game against Oldham.

The game against Walsall ended in a 1-1 draw after 36-year-old Lester scored a last-minute equaliser for the Spireites.
