Town and Coventry Charged By FA
Wednesday, 11th Dec 2019 14:19
Town and Coventry have been charged by the FA with failing to “ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion” during an incident in the second half of Saturday’s 1-1 League One draw at St Andrew’s.
An FA statement reads: “Coventry City FC and Ipswich Town FC have been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20 following their EFL League One game on Saturday 7th December 2019.
“It is alleged that they failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 57th minute.”
The charge relates to a clash between Gwion Edwards and Sam McCallum close to the dugouts, which led to both sets of players, including keepers and some subs, becoming involved in a melee.
Edwards and Sky Blues sub Gervane Kastaneer, who was warming up at the time, were yellow-carded by referee Darren Drysdale.
The FA say the two clubs have until Friday 13th December to respond to the charge.

We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
