The FA have finally set a date for Canaries boss Glenn Roeder and assistant Lee Clark to answer charges of improper conduct following the controversial defeat at Bristol City back in March.

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 on July 25 - more than four months after the incidents took place.

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

The score was 1-1 at the time, but the hosts scored from the resulting free-kick, given for handball against Lee Croft, although Roeder and Clark argued that it was defender Jamie McCombe who had committed the offence.
