Ref Mark Halsey has been withdrawn from this weekend's round of Premier League games.

The Daily Mail says Halsey, the official who did not send off Callum McManaman for his high tackle on Massadio Haidara, has not been given a Barclays Premier League game to referee this weekend.

Halsey did not issue a red card to Wigan striker McManaman during his side's 2-1 win over Newcastle on March 17 because, he said later, his view of the challenge on Haidara was blocked.

He will referee Friday's npower League One game between Coventry and Doncaster.
