St Johnstone have accepted the two-match suspension offered to Lee Croft for "serious foul play".

The 29-year-old midfielder was charged by the Scottish FA following a tackle on Ross County's Liam Boyce.

Referee John Beaton played an advantage from the challenge, leading to County's goal in a 2-1 Scottish Cup victory for Saints at the weekend.

Croft will miss Saturday's game against St Mirren and the Scottish Cup tie against Queen of the South in February.
