Jones to seek personal hearing over improper conduct charge

Dave Jones is to seek a personal hearing after being charged by the Football Association following Saturday’s touchline clash with Brighton coach Charlie Oatway.

Jones and Oatway have been accused of improper conduct after a bust-up between the two benches when Danny Pugh fouled Brighton’s Inigo Calderon during the second-half at Hillsborough. They were sent to the stands and now face an FA hearing.
