Tuesday 24th April.
The FA disciplinary committee were in action today fining Joe Jordan
£750 and Ben Thornley £1000 for their protestations to referee Colin
Webster following Bolton’s last gasp equaliser in February. The
amounts of the fine sound more like a modest ‘smack on the wrist’
than a full-blown punishment and presumably the panel could understand
the anger felt by the accused. Lou Macari meanwhile is still waiting
for a new date for his own appearance before the same committee,
which is a ridiculous delay from an incident that took place in
Next Tuesday’s opponents, Wimbledon, were involved in a 3-3 draw
tonight leaving them 7 points behind the last play-off place with
3 games to go. They are due to face Fulham on Saturday at Craven
Cottage, and hopefully this time next week they will have nothing
to play for and give us the 3 points. Also in action tonight were
Grimsby Town, and a 4-1 home defeat maintains the Mariners’ interest
in the relegation equation.
