Reading striker Leroy Lita has been found guilty of violent conduct and banned for three matches at a Football Association hearing on Friday.
Lita has scored seven Premiership goals this season
Lita was found guilty of aiming a head-butt at Charlton's Talal El Karkouri when the sides met on 9 April.
The FA proved the charge after viewing video footage as the match referee, Graham Poll, had not seen the incident at the time.
The ban comes into immediate effect so Lita misses Saturday's tie with Fulham.
Lita, an England Under-21 international, had denied the charge and his manager Steve Coppell had said he was "massively surprised".
However, the Royals boss had pledged that the club would also punish Lita if he was found guilty of ill-discipline by the FA.
