The charge relates to an incident during last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Plymouth Argyle after the Pilgrims were awarded the second of two penalties.

Wellens was found to be in breach of FA rule E3 when he kicked a water bottle in the direction of Plymouth fans.

He was subsequently shown a red card by referee Trevor Kettle for dissent.
