In a statement, The FA said: "Armand Gnanduillet will serve a one-match suspension with immediate effect after he admitted an FA charge.

"The Blackpool player’s behaviour in the tunnel following his dismissal against Fleetwood Town on October 27, 2018 amounted to improper conduct which was outside the jurisdiction of the match officials.

"He was also fined £2,000."
