Hull striker George Boyd charged with misconduct

HULL, England (AP) — Hull striker George Boyd has been charged with misconduct by the English Football Association for spitting at Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

The incident, which was not spotted by referee Lee Mason but caught on video, happened in the 68th minute of Hull's 2-0 loss against City in the Premier League on Saturday. Boyd and Hart had a heated exchange after the forward went down in the box following a challenge from the England keeper. Mason waved away Hull's appeal for a penalty but Hart received a yellow card after the pair clashed heads. Hart faces no further punishment.
