Wally Downes has been suspended for four weeks after admitting breaching Football Association rules around betting.

The AFC Wimbledon manager placed five bets on football matches between 30 November 2013 and 30 January 2014 and three bets between 16 March and 12 July 2019.

Downes, 58, was also given a £3,000 fine and had been suspended by the club since being charged last month.

His ban from all football related activity ends on 14 November.

FA rules bar anyone employed by a football club from gambling on matches.

Since being suspended by the Dons they've seen a resurgence under caretaker boss Glyn Hodges who will take charge once again as they welcome Portsmouth on Saturday.

Having won their previous two fixtures, they climbed up to 21st in League One.
