The Rams Boss has seen the FA charge him with 'improper conduct' following an outburst to Saturday's referee, Iain Williamson.
The incident happened as Derby County suffered an agonising injury time defeat against Peterborough. The Rams had led the game with two Theo Robinson goals but the Posh claimed all three points in the third minute of time added on.
The loss in the final minutes is something that Clough had thought he had irradicated from the team and the lost points which blighted last season.
Clough must now respond to the claim by 4.00pm on Friday.
