Jedinak banned for four matches

Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak will be suspended for four games after accepting a Football Association charge of violent conduct.

The Australian was penalised retrospectively by the FA after he appeared to elbow West Ham striker Diafra Sakho during Palace's match against the Hammers on Saturday.

The usual punishment for violent conduct is a three-match ban but the Palace captain's red card against Sunderland in November means it has been extended to four.

He will now miss fixtures against Southampton, QPR, Stoke and Manchester City.

An FA statement read: "Mile Jedinak will serve a four match suspension with immediate effect after he admitted an FA charge of violent conduct which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.

"The incident involving the Crystal Palace midfielder and West Ham United's Diafra Sakho took place in the 87th minute of their fixture on Saturday [28 February 2015].

"The player's suspension consists of three matches for violent conduct with an additional one match as he has previously been dismissed this season."
