Rodger's FA Hearing

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 10/09/2003

TOWN assistant manager Graham Rodger will face an FA disciplinary hearing on Monday over an head-butting incident with Stoke manager Tony Pulis last season. Town's assistant boss is charged with an alleged act of violent conduct against City in the match at Blundell Park on February 8.

Match referee Clive Wilkes showed Rodger the red card on the advice of his fourth official after a touch line confrontation between the two men. Rodger requested a personal hearing in order clear his name, but if found guilty could face a lengthy touchline ban.

"I don't want to be known as a loose cannon stood on the sideline. I'm passionate about football and I'm a frustrated ex-player - but I'm not a lunatic," said Rodger at the time of the incident, who also claimed that City's manager backed his case.
