Wise facing new FA rap

Dennis Wise faces a another charge of improper conduct after being sent from the dug-out for a second time as Leeds manager.

Dennis Wise faces a another charge of improper conduct after being sent from the dug-out for a second time as Leeds manager.

Wise was sent to the stands by referee Nigel Miller towards the end of his side’s 1-1 draw at relegation rivals Southend after venting his fury when a late penalty appeal was turned away.

FA disciplinary chiefs will now assess referee Miller’s report, with Wise already due to answer a similar charge relating to Leeds’ 3-2 home defeat to West Brom on January 20.

“I don’t know what he sent me off for, I wasn’t listening, walking on the pitch perhaps?” said Wise after Leeds’ draw at Roots Hall.

“I’ve had problems with him before. I told him I don’t want him as a referee. For me he’s not good and I don’t want him to referee for me again.

“I hope there was an assessor here and I hope they put him down a couple of divisions. He gave the penalty and then he pointed the other way. It’s a disgrace.”
