Carlisle United striker Shaun Miller has been charged for ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’ following the penalty decision in Tuesday’s game against Wycombe Wanderers.

The charge reads as follows:

"Carlisle United player Shaun Miller has been charged for ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’.

It is alleged he committed a clear act of simulation which led to a penalty being awarded in the 35th minute of the game against Wycombe Wanderers on 17 October 2017. He has until 6pm on 19 October 2017 to respond.

Incidents which suggest a match official has been deceived by an act of simulation are referred to a panel consisting of one ex-match official, one ex-manager and one ex-player.

Each panel member will be asked to review all available video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it was an offence of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’.

Only in circumstances where the panel are unanimous would The FA issue a charge."

Carlisle United are currently reviewing the evidence pending a decision on an appeal.
