Blackpool's Tom Ince has been banned for two matches after accepting a misconduct charge from the FA relating to a gesture made during the Capital One Cup defeat to Preston.

The FA charged Ince with making an offensive and/or insulting and/or abusive gesture towards a match official in the 24th minute of the match.

The match officials did not witness the incident but Ince was caught on video. Blackpool lost the game 1-0 with Tom Clarke scoring a late header.
