FA charges Jewell for referee tirade

The Football Association have charged Wigan boss Paul Jewell with improper conduct for his post-match outburst at referee Phil Dowd at Arsenal on Sunday.

Jewell was incensed by Dowd's performance at the Emirates Stadium, specifically his refusal to award Wigan a penalty when Mathieu Flamini appeared to bring down Emile Heskey in the area when the visitors were leading 1-0.

Dowd further infuriated Jewell by not letting Josip Skoko back onto the pitch after he had received treatment, meaning the Australian was still stood on the sidelines as Fitz Hall scored the own goal which set Arsenal up for a comeback win.

After the final whistle, Jewell stormed towards Dowd and vented his frustration at the referee's handling of the game, before following his outburst up with stinging comments to the media after the final whistle, which have since been backed up by Latics owner Dave Whelan.

The FA, who have made it clear they have nothing to do with the appointment of Premier League referees, are still investigating his post-match comments, and have confirmed the current charge relates purely to his personal rant at Dowd.

'Wigan Athletic manager Paul Jewell has been charged with improper conduct for his behaviour towards referee Phil Dowd following the final whistle of the match at Arsenal on Sunday, February 11,' said an FA statement.

'He has until February 28 to respond.'
