Crystal Palace defender Claude Davis has been handed a three-game ban after being found guilty of violent conduct.

Davis was charged by the Football Association earlier this week following his controversial clash with Cardiff defender Roger Johnson.

The on-loan Derby centre-half was accused by Cardiff of elbowing Johnson in the throat in a challenge which led to the Bluebirds defender being taken to

hospital.

The incident sparked an angry war of words between both clubs with Bluebirds chairman Peter Ridsdale calling for action to be taken against Davis.

Referee Russell Booth took no action at the time and Davis denied the subsequent charge.

However, an FA regulatory commission has found the 30-year-old guilty and he will now sit out Palace's last three games of the season.
