The Football Association has confirmed Oldham manager John Sheridan has been charged with improper conduct.
Sheridan was been accused of breaching rule E3 - improper conduct - following his dismissal in the recent league game at Tranmere.
The Latics chief was sent to the stands by referee Andy Hall during Oldham's 1-0 win at Prenton Park, after taking his protestations too far.
Sheridan is now mulling over whether to request a personal hearing or accept the FA charge.
In other news, Oldham are awaiting a Football League tribunal's decision on how much they will have to pay Bury for Dale Stephens, who moved from Gigg Lane to Boundary Park over the summer.
Bury are entitled for a compensation fee for the 20-year-old midfielder, after the two clubs failed to thrash out an agreement in pre-season.
