Chesterfield manager John Sheridan has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association.

The charge relates to an incident that occurred during the npower League One match against Charlton at The Valley on Saturday.

Sheridan felt his side should have been awarded a second-half penalty when Alex Mendy's cross appeared to strike the arm of home defender Rhoys Wiggins.

Oxfordshire-based referee Graham Scott ignored the appeals, which led to Sheridan confronting the fourth official.

His protests resulted in him being sent to the stands by Scott.

Sheridan has until the weekend to respond.
