Millwall vow to fight 'unjustified' FA charges
Tuesday 13 October 2009
Millwall have vowed to defend themselves "vigorously" against the FA charges brought against them following crowd trouble at their Carling Cup match at West Ham in August.
The Lions have been granted a seven-day extension to mount their legal defence and respond to three charges arising from the violence which marred the game at Upton Park.
"We will be pleading not guilty to all charges and defending our position vigorously," said Lions chief executive Andy Ambler.
"It is a frustration to us that we are committing significant resources of time, energy and money towards having to defend ourselves in the face of these charges.
"It is our contention that the charges are not justified."
