Reds wait on FA verdict

Have your say

BARNSLEY director Don Rowing is praying “common sense prevails” over the club’s Football Association charge following complaints levelled against a referee.

The club will today find out whether the charge, relating to comments made by the club’s press officer Rob Knowles about official Peter Quinn in the clash at Hull City last month, will be upheld or not.

The FA say the remarks questioned the “integrity” of Cleveland official Quinn and brought the game into “disrepute”.

Rowing told The Star: “We hope that common sense prevails but we shall wait and see what the FA’s verdict is.”

Barnsley travel to FA Youth Cup holders Chelsea in the fifth round of the competition on Friday February 11. Kick-off 7pm.
