Reading defender Andre Bikey has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association following his dismissal in the play-off semi-final first-leg defeat at Burnley.
The 24-year-old Cameroon international reacted furiously after being shown a straight red card in time added on for stamping on Clarets striker Robbie Blake and has since apologised to Royals' fans for his behaviour.
An FA statement read: "The charge relates to Bikey's conduct during the Championship play-off semi-final first leg against Burnley."
It continued: "A regulatory commission will hear the case on Thursday, May 21."
Bikey, banned for four matches, missed the second-leg defeat at the Madejski Stadium and will be sidelined for the first three games of next season.
