Holloway charged with improper conduct

The Football Association has charged Blackpool boss Ian Holloway with improper conduct for his language and behaviour towards officials at Bloomfield Road on Saturday.

Holloway was unhappy with referee Mike Dean's performance throughout the 2-1 defeat at home to Blackburn, with Gary Taylor-Fletcher believing he was fouled in the run-up to Brett Emerton's injury-time winner. There were also suspicions of offside.

After the game, Holloway said: "I thought the referee had a poor game and he is going to report me for what I said to him in the tunnel. I can't believe what he saw. I thought there was some unbelievably strange decisions out there.

"I waited for him in the tunnel. Never mind - I have got to learn and I should know better, but it is ridiculous."

Holloway was handed a two-match touchline ban for his conduct towards an official in January this year, which means no standard sanction is offered.

Holloway has until Friday to respond to the charge and a Regulatory Commission will hear the case within ten days of his reply.
