The Football Association has charged Wolves winger Daniel Podence with spitting at Nottingham Forest’s Brennan Johnson during Saturday’s 1-1 draw.
In the 90th minute, Johnson appeared to suggest that the Portuguese forward, who scored Wolves’ equalizer, spat in his direction.
After a VAR check at the City Ground, referee Chris Kavanagh took no action.
A six-match suspension is the standard penalty for spitting.
Podence’s charge is one of several issued following the game, with Forest also facing FA action after players surrounded Kavanagh during the first half.
According to an FA update, Forest “failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly manner and/or did not behave in an improper manner.”
