Roeder and Clark charged by FA

Norwich City manager Glenn Roeder and assistant manager Lee Clark have been charged with improper conduct following their actions in the 2-1 defeat to Bristol City last month.

Norwich City manager Glenn Roeder and assistant manager Lee Clark have been charged with improper conduct following their actions in the 2-1 defeat at Bristol City last month.

The pair have been cited for protesting with referee Andy D'Urso over the free-kick that led to the Robins' winning goal.

An FA statement said: “The charges relate to the pair's behaviour towards match officials at the end of Norwich's match against Bristol City on March 29. Roeder and Clark have until 21 April to respond to the charge.”

The game was more than two minutes into stoppage time when Essex official D'Urso gave Bristol City a free-kick for handball against Norwich's Lee Croft, when it appeared his opponent, Jamie McCombe, had handled. The free-kick led to substitute Steve Brooker's winning goal.
