Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway and attacker Wilfried Zaha have both admitted FA charges for improper conduct.
Zaha, who is on loan from Manchester United after signing for them in January, gave Leeds fans the middle finger during their clash on March 9.
He has requested a personal hearing, while Holloway is hit with a 2,000 fine because of his misconduct towards match officials during the same game.
Response: Wilfried Zaha had a message for the Leeds fans giving him stick
Rambunctious: Ian Holloway was not amused during Palace's clash with Leeds
Zaha, who had been suffering abuse
from Leeds fans before the incident, was ticked off by Man United for
his behaviour during the 2-2 draw.
He admitted on Twitter that he should have behaved better, telling his followers 'it was very unprofessional of me'.
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was
given a one-match ban, fined 20,000 and warned as to his future conduct
after a similar gesture aimed at Fulham fans back in December.
