Clarke Carlisle has been banned for one game by the Football Association after Danny Shittu was mistakenly booked in Watford's game with Sheffield United.

Shittu was yellow-carded by referee Martin Atkinson after Blades striker Jon Stead was brought down as he looked to break through on goal.

But the foul was committed by Carlisle who already had a booking for trying to kick the ball from the keeper's hands.

As a result, Carlisle will now miss Saturday's trip to Reading.
