Football in Brief: Heskey in clear after tunnel fury
Tuesday 10 May 2011
The Aston Villa striker Emile Heskey will face no disciplinary action in relation to his behaviour during Saturday's Premier League match with Wigan. The former England forward barged into referee Mike Jones during the first half at Villa Park and was cautioned.
Heskey felt he was not being given sufficient protection and was still angry at half-time and had to be restrained in the tunnel. Jones could have issued another card had he felt Heskey's behaviour was unacceptable during the interval but he did not. It is anticipated that will be the end of the matter.
