Oxford United defender Chey Dunkley has been given a warning and reprimand after admitting breaching the Football Association's anti-doping regulations.

The 23-year-old, who joined from Kidderminster last November, tested positive for salbutamol after using an inhaler prescribed for his asthma.

A regulatory commission hearing found there was no intention on Dunkley's part to enhance sporting performance.

But he will be subject to target testing for two years.

An Oxford spokesman said: "Chey Dunkley suffers from asthma and was not aware of the restriction on salbutamol use. As a club, we accept the FA ruling."
