The English Football Association has charged Stoke manager Mark Hughes with improper conduct after he was sent to the stands during his team's 5-1 loss at Newcastle.

Hughes was ordered from the dug-out after he reacted with fury to the dismissal of midfielder Glenn Whelan just before halftime. As Hughes was going into the stands, after throwing his coat, defender Marc Wilson was also sent off.

The FA says Hughes has until Thursday to respond to the charge.
