Exeter City defender Tom Parkes has been suspended for three matches after being charged with violent conduct by the Football Association.

Parkes, 27, accepted the charge relating to a clash with Stevenage defender Chris Stokes in the 87th minute of Exeter's 1-0 win on Saturday.

It was not seen by the match officials but was caught on video.

Parkes will miss Exeter's Carabao Cup first-round tie at Coventry and League Two games against Swindon and Oldham.
