A statement on the FA's official website read: "The FA has today charged Leeds United's Alan Smith with improper conduct (breach of FA Rule E1).

"The charge relates to an incident during the home match against Manchester United in the Carling Cup on 28th October in which Smith threw an object into the crowd.

"Alan Smith has until 9th December to respond."

Smith and Leeds may now be hit with a three-game ban.
