CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

FC Cincinnati's Djiby Fall has received a combined six-game suspension and two undisclosed fines following Saturday's match against Louisville City FC,  according to the United Soccer League's discipline report

The suspension comes after Louisville head coach James O'Connor accused Fall of a biting midfielder Niall McCabe during the 1-1 draw.

Fall was given a five-game suspension and fine for what USL officials termed as a "major game misconduct," the discipline report states. 

He was also given a one-game suspension and fine for a red card during the 87th minute. After the red card, it appears that contact was made between Djiby and McCabe.

The suspension runs through June 3, pending any schedule changes.
