Southampton striker Charlie Austin will miss the games against Leicester City and Derby County after being handed a two-match ban.

The forward was suspended by the Football Association for making an abusive and/or insulting gesture during the Premier League game at home to Manchester City last month.

Austin will be available for selection again when Saints host Everton in the league a week on Saturday.
