Norwich manager Paul Lambert and head of football operations Gary Karsa have been charged with misconduct by the Football Association.

The charge relates to the Coca-Cola League One leaders' 3-1 defeat to Tranmere at Prenton Park on Good Friday.

During the game, Lambert was sent to the stands by referee Eddie Ilderton after he had stepped on to the pitch to kick the ball back for a free-kick to be taken. Karsa followed him after reacting angrily to the decision.

Both men have until April 15 to respond to the charge.
