Leeds forward Patrick Bamford has been charged with "successful deception of a match official" following the Championship match with Aston Villa on Sunday, while Ireland's Conor Hourihane is in the clear. 

Bamford, who could be banned for two games, has been charged following an incident with Aston Villa midfielder Anwar El Ghazi.

The Villa player was originally shown a red card for violent conduct but this has now been rescinded by the Football Association.

Leeds and Villa have also been charged with failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 72nd minute.

A statement from the FA read: "Anwar El Ghazi will be available for Aston Villa's next three matches after a claim of wrongful dismissal was upheld by an Independent Regulatory Commission.

"The forward was sent off for violent conduct during the EFL Championship fixture against Leeds United on Sunday [28/04/2019].

"Patrick Bamford has subsequently been charged with 'successful deception of a match official'. It is alleged the Leeds United player's behaviour in the 72nd minute of the fixture, which involved committing a clear act of simulation that led to Anwar El Ghazi being dismissed, amounts to improper conduct. The forward has until 18:00 on Wednesday [01/05/2019] to respond to the charge."

"In addition, Leeds United and Aston Villa have been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20. It is alleged they failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 72nd minute of the fixture.

"Both clubs have until 18:00 on Friday [03/05/2019] to provide a response."

The FA also said that an incident involving Villa's Hourihane was considered "not seen" by a panel of former referees but that the governing body deemed it not to be violent conduct so no further action would be taken against the Ireland international.
