Ian Holloway: Confronts Leeds forward Luke Varney

Holloway came onto the pitch at the end of his side's 2-2 draw with Leeds to confront United forward Luke Varney and the match officials.

The Palace boss was angered by referee Dean Whitehouse's decision not to send off Varney and team-mate Stephen Warnock for perceived red card offences.

But Holloway admits he went too far and will accept the charge, while also confirming he will speak with Wilfried Zaha.

The winger, back on loan at Selhurst Park as part of his transfer deal to Manchester United, has also accepted an improper conduct over a gesture made towards the travelling supporters was caught on camera.

"I won't be appealing to the charge. I was shouting that was wrong and I must be a role model. I will move on, as will Wilf," said Holloway.

"We are a well-run football club and we will deal with the issue concerning Wilf in the right way. I don't expect him to get a ban.

"There were incidents in the game that were not dealt with in the right way. That is now in the past and we have to get on with football."

Meanwhile, the Eagles' Championship game with Millwall, originally due to be played at The Den on Saturday 13 April, has been rescheduled for Tuesday 30 April, kick-off 7:45pm.

This is due to Millwall's continued involvement in the FA Cup over that weekend, where they will face Wigan in the semi-finals of the competition.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
