Billy Davies: Has denied a second breach of improper conduct

The charges relate to the Sky Bet Championship fixture against east midlands rivals Leicester at the City Ground February 19.

During the 2-2 draw between the two sides, Davies was sent to the stands by referee Anthony Taylor. The Scot was angry that Foxes defender Wes Morgan escaped a red card after conceding a first-half penalty for a foul on Jamie Mackie.

Davies has admitted the first breach which alleges that he used abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards the referee.

However, he denies the second breach of improper conduct, which alleges that he deliberately made contact with the Mr Taylor.

An FA statement confirmed: "Davies has requested a non-personal hearing, the date of which will be set in due course."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
