Norwich City manager Glenn Roeder and his assistant Lee Clark are due to face the top brass at the FA tomorrow to answer charges of “improper conduct” following City's controversial defeat at Bristol City on March 29.

The City pair have both admitted the charges but requested personal hearings and will now appear before the FA's disciplinary panel at Soho Square nearly four months after the incidents took place.

Roeder and Clark were incensed that referee Andy D'Urso awarded Bristol City a free kick in the dying moments of the match at Ashton Gate.

With the score 1-1 at the time, the hosts bagged a winner from the resulting free-kick given for handball against Lee Croft, although it appeared defender Jamie McCombe had committed the offence. Roeder strode on to the pitch to confront D'Urso at the final whistle, while Clark appeared to be sent from the dug out.

The pair could face touchline bans this season as punishment from the FA.
