Avram Grant has received a two-match touchline ban and fined £6,000 for comments made about referee Mike Jones.

The West Ham manager was found guilty of improper conduct over the comments made after the 2-1 FA Cup defeat at Stoke last month.

After the match, Grant said: "Until they scored he gave fouls, a penalty, everything for them."

Grant will miss the games against Bolton Wanderers and Aston Villa.
