Huddersfield Town assistant manager Nicky Cowley has been charged with using "abusive and/or insulting words" by the Football Association.

It is further alleged that Cowley "made reference to nationality" when speaking to a member of Nottingham Forest's coaching staff at the conclusion of their Championship game on 21 December.

Huddersfield won the match 2-1.

Cowley, who assists his brother Danny at Huddersfield, has until Tuesday, 17 March to respond to the FA charge.

A club statement said he "strenuously denies" the allegations and will be requesting a personal hearing.
