Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell is ruled out this weekend with a hamstring injury.

FA Charges

Leyton Orient and Northampton Town are facing an FA charge after a late penalty award sparked a mass brawl in their League Two match on Tuesday. Both clubs have been charged with "failing to ensure their club officials and/or players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour". The Cobblers are under the spotlight after their players surrounded an official when the spot-kick was given in the 84th minute. After the penalty was converted, a 14-man brawl broke out with both Orient's James Dayton and Cobblers' Scott Wharton sent off.

Middlesbrough and Birmingham City are also facing the same charges after a brawl which included players and coaches during their Championship match on Tuesday. Birmingham had a late winner chalked off, in a 1-1 draw, by referee Andy Woolmer because of a head injury to Marcus Tavernier. Boro's coach Leo Percovich and Birmingham's head of performance Sean Rush were both sent off and face individual charges of improper conduct.

Manchester United were fined £20,000 for the same charges as above, after their players surrounded referee Craig Pawson over his award of a goal to Liverpool. VAR later ruled out the goal due to a foul on United keeper David de Gea.

 


Orient Plan Edinburgh Stand

Former head coach Justin Edinburgh is to be immortalised by Leyton Orient with the renaming of the West Stand as the Justin Edinburgh Stand. His wife Kerri said: "It is with enormous pride and excitement that we will be attending the official unveiling of The Justin Edinburgh Stand. Over the past months we can't thank Leyton Orient enough for their continued support to us all. We'll be forever grateful for that, and know why Justin loved this club and the people involved with it so much." Justin passed away in June 2019, at the age of 49, just weeks after leading Orient to promotion back to the Football League.

 


Wanderer Gets Gambling Ban

Wycombe Wanderer's Scott Kasket has been banned from "all football activity" for 2 months, with a further 4 montsh suspended, after he admitted breaking the Football Association's better rules. The 23 year old forward has also been fined £3446.13 for placing 183 bets on matches between September 2014 and August 2016, while playing for Leyton Orient. The bets included 65 on matches in competitions Orient were competing in, 19 on Orient matches and 10 of those 19 were against Orient. His £946.13 winnings from betting on Orient were added to the initial £2,500 fine.
