Dawson avoids extra ban
Thursday 30 October 2008
Tottenham defender Michael Dawson has escaped further suspension but received a warning as to his future conduct following his sending-off against Stoke.
Dawson was charged with improper conduct for protesting about his dismissal in Tottenham's 2-1 defeat at the Britannia Stadium on October 19.
The 24-year-old could have been banned for an additional two matches on top of the three already incurred for the initial red card, which he received for a dangerous challenge on Mamady Sidibe.
However, after the player requested a personal hearing, an independent regulatory commission today decided on a warning, the Football Association announced.
