Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By CHRIS MCKENNA

CRYS­TAL PALACE man­ager Ian Hol­loway has been charged by the FA over his con­duct af­ter his side’s 1-0 Pre­mier League home de­feat by Tot­ten­ham on Sun­day.

An FA state­ment said: “Firstly, it is al­leged that Hol­loway’s lan­guage and/or be­hav­iour in or around the match of­fi­cials’ chang­ing room at the end of the game amounted to im­proper con­duct.

“Se­condly, it is al­leged that Hol­loway’s post- match me­dia com­ments ques­tioned the in­tegrity of the ref­eree and/or match of­fi­cials and/or im­plied that the ref­eree and/or match of­fi­cials were mo­ti­vated by bias, and/or brought the game into dis­re­pute.”

Hol­loway (above) has un­til 4pm on Fri­day to re­spond to both charges.

Af­ter the Sel­hurst Park game, Hol­loway ap­peared to claim his Palace team will not be fairly treated by ref­er­ees this sea­son.
