CINCINNATI -- FC Cincinnati forward Andy Craven has been suspended for four games, the USL announced Wednesday.

Craven was issued the suspension and a fine for an undisclosed amount "for his actions during FCC's loss to Bethlehem Steel FC this past Saturday," according to the league's weekly discipline report.

Craven was issued a red card during the game after he collided with another player, Santi Moar, and knocked him to the ground.

The incident was classified as "violent conduct," according to the discipline report. League officials wrote that Craven deliberately targeted Moar's head.

Craven apologized on Twitter Monday.

Another FC Cincinnati player, Djiby Fall, was suspended for six games April 26 for "major misconduct" during a match against Louisville City FC. Fall was issued a red card during that game for a cleats-up tackle, and he made contact with another player during an apparent shouting match after the tackle.
