Daniel Podence charged by FA

Premier League

The Football Association has charged Wolves winger Daniel Podence after it was claimed that he spit at Brennan Johnson during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest.

As Johnson seemed to imply that the Portuguese striker, who scored Wolves‘ equalizer, spat in his direction, tensions erupted in the final minute.

Once a VAR check was conducted at the City Stadium, referee Chris Kavanagh did nothing.

Spitting carries a regular six-match suspension as a penalty.

Podence’s accusation is one of many issued during the game; Forest is also being investigated by the FA after players swarmed Kavanagh in the first half.

Forest “failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or do not behave in a way which is improper” according to an FA update.

Both Wolves‘ Pablo Sanz and the club’s deputy manager Alan Tate have been accused of “improper and/or violent behaviour”

Early in the second half, both players received red cards after the visitors’ demand for a penalty when Wolves winger Adama Traore was brought down in the area was denied.

The deadline for responses from Podence, Forest, Tate, and Sanz is April 12.
