Nottingham Forest's Greg Halford has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association.

The charge relates to an incident that took place early in the second half of the Sky Bet Championship fixture against Bournemouth on Saturday at the Goldsands Stadium.

Referee Simon Hooper took no action at the time against Halford, who shortly afterwards scored Forest's goal in what turned out to be a 4-1 defeat for the Reds.

A statement on thefa.com said: "Nottingham Forest's Greg Halford has been charged with violent conduct following his side's game against AFC Bournemouth on 26 April 2014.

"The charge relates to an incident in the 50th minute of the above fixture which was not seen by the match officials but was caught on video.

"Halford has until 6pm on 30 April 2014 to respond to the charge."

The charge could see Halford miss Forest's final league fixture against Brighton at the City Ground on Saturday.
