Palace boss Holloway incurs FA displeasure over ref comments

Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway is charged by the Football Association following Sunday's 1-0 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. The FA confirm: "Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has been charged by The FA in relation to two separate matters. 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 has until 16:00 BST on 23 August to respond to both charges.
