The charge related to using an offensive and/or insulting and/or abusive gesture towards a match official.

The incident occurred in the 24th minute of Blackpool's 1-0 Capital One Cup loss at Preston on Monday night.

It was not seen by the match officials but was subsequently revealed by video evidence and the two-match penalty is automatic for such an offence.

Blackpool will therefore be without their highly-rated winger for the visit of Barnsley this Saturday and the following week's trip to Middlesbrough.

But the 21-year-old, who is carrying a minor groin injury at the moment, could feature for the England U21 side against Scotland at Bramall Lane next Tuesday.

The FA confirmed in a statement on its website: "Blackpool's Thomas Ince has been suspended for two games with immediate effect after he accepted an FA charge of using an offensive and/or insulting and/or abusive gesture towards a match official.

"The automatic penalty for the offence is in relation to an on-field incident which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video in the 24th minute of Blackpool's Capital One Cup match at Preston North End on 5 August 2013."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
