Striker Tomer Hemed has appealed the charge he has received from the Football Association following Brighton’s game against Newcastle United.

On Tuesday the FA confirmed that Hemed had been charged with an alleged act of violent conduct in the 88th minute for an incident involving DeAndre Yedlin.

Hemed trod on Yedlin and manager Chris Hughton is already on record as saying it wasn’t deliberate. It was however missed by the match day referee and caught on video.

The FA refers such incidents to a panel of former elite referees and they view the footage independently, with retrospective action only being taken if all three unanimously agree it should’ve been actioned.

He had until 6pm on Tuesday to respond to the charge and Brighton have confirmed the player has appealed.
