'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Quashie facing lengthy ban

Referee Mike Dean reported Quashie in his match report for use of foul and abusive language used towards his assistant.

A Football Association statement read, “West Bromwich Albion's Nigel Quashie has been charged with using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official.

“The charge relates to his conduct following his sending-off against Middlesbrough on February 26th.”

Quashie was dismissed 10-minutes into the second half at The Hawthorns after taking a kick at Boro's George Boateng. Quashie then used abusive and/or insulting words towards the fourth official as he left the pitch.

The former Southampton man, currently on International duty with Scotland, will have his case heard at the FA Headquarters a week on Tuesday.

Quashie has been dismissed once already this season and already faced a lengthy ban for his second dismissal of the season, but due to him bad-mouthing the official he could now be banned for a total of five matches.

Albion boss Bryan Robson has already said that he will punish his midfielder and fine him for his indiscipline. Robson added, 'I am disappointed with Nigel's discipline because he let himself down and he let his team-mates down,

'It was a sending-off offence. I don't think it was really violent but he had a little kick at Boateng and the referee was right to send him off.'

Quashie has been given until 6pm on Wednesday to respond to the charge with the hearing set for the 7th March in Soho, London.

Quashie has looked good since his move from Southampton and has improved the midfield's work rate. He has made a stupid mistake and now we are going to miss him during a vital couple of months, I hope that it is not too costly for us in what will be a tense run in.
