Young Collingwood defender Brayden Maynard has been charged with striking Greater Western Sydney's Steve Johnson.

The teenager can accept a $1000 sanction with an early plea, after he was booked for an incident that took place in the final quarter of the Magpies' 32-point win over the Giants.

According to the Match Review Panel, the incident was assessed as intentional conduct with low impact to the body, which was classified as a $1500 sanction.

Maynard has no applicable record which impacts the penalty, and an early plea enables him to accept a $1000 sanction.
