The 30-year-old striker won a penalty, which he successfully converted himself to make it 2-1, following a 50th-minute challenge from Fulham defender Antonee Robinson.

But video evidence suggested Robinson did not make contact with him.

And the FA has now charged Godden with "a clear act of simulation".

Godden has until Wednesday, 6 October to provide a response.

The Sky Blues, who were propelled to third in the Championship by their seventh win in 11 games this season, issued a short statement in response to Godden's improper conduct charge.

It said: "We are disappointed to learn of the FA's decision to charge Matty Godden with a breach of rule E3.

"As per the FA regulations we will respond within the timescale required."

Coventry City striker banned for two games for diving against Fulham

Coventry City's Matt Godden has been banned for two games by the Football Association for his dive in Saturday's 4-1 Championship win at home to Fulham.

The striker, 30, won a penalty, which he converted himself to make it 2-1, following a 50th-minute challenge from Fulham defender Antonee Robinson.

Video evidence suggested that Robinson did not make contact with Godden.

He admitted a breach of FA Rule E3 for improper conduct after being charged with "a clear act of simulation".

Godden will now miss the two away trips to Lancashire in five days to face Blackburn and Preston immediately following the international break.

Having come from 1-0 down, Mark Robins' Sky Blues were propelled up to third in the Championship table by the win over Fulham, their seventh in 11 games this season.
