Owls boss charged for Brighton bust-up

Owls boss Dave Jones has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association (FA).

The charge is in relation to a bust-up between the two dugouts when Wednesday beat Brighton and Hove Albion at Hillsborough on Saturday.

Jones was sent to the stands for his involvement, as well as Brighton's Charlie Oatway, who has also been hit with the FA charge.

The Owls boss said immediately after the match: 'Things happen within a game. The sending-off was pivotal in it as well - and deservedly so, the lad stamped on him.

'Then I just felt every challenge we made, they [Brighton] were trying to even it up and I didn't think that was right and that's what the fracas was over. It's handbags at the end of the day, it's done and dusted now, it's over.

'I think the referee did the right thing just to calm it all down because it would have just carried on. I'll see what he puts in his report and if he gets it right.'

Jones can appeal the decision until 4pm on Friday.

Anyone else catch Poyet's video clip on the BBC page? It's a bit confusing TBH. He starts off saying his fella is totally innocent, then it sounds like he's accusing DJ of lying, then he has a go at the whole procedure and ends up talking about himself. After four minutes plus, I'm left with one unshakeable conclusion: The guy's a Romulan!!
