FA set to ban Wigan's McCulloch
Chris Morgan
Morgan has already forgiven McCulloch
Wigan midfielder Lee McCulloch has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association after appearing to punch Sheffield United's Chris Morgan.

Referee Peter Walton missed the incident, which came as Wigan took a corner towards the end of Saturday's game at the JJB Stadium.

McCulloch has until 1800 GMT on Tuesday to answer the FA charge.

The 28-year-old apologised to Morgan following the incident, which left the Blades skipper with a black eye.

If the FA finds him guilty, McCulloch faces a three-match ban, which would see him miss games against Chelsea, Manchester United and Watford.

Morgan has already said he is willing to forgive and forget.

"Lee was man enough to come and knock on the door, put his arm round me and apologise," he said.

"That's enough for me. That's it. It's finished. Let's get on with it.

"We're all sportsmen. We're going to get knocks and black eyes. It is part and parcel of the game."
