Blackpool manager Ian Holloway receives touchline ban

Coventry 2-2 Blackpool

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has received a one-match touchline after being charged with improper conduct by the Football Association for comments made during Tuesday's draw at Coventry.

Holloway claimed fourth official Guy Stretton prevented him from making a substitution before a Coventry corner which led to a goal for Gary Deegan.

The charge is for using insulting or abusive language and behaviour amounting to improper conduct.

He has also been fined £2,000.

Holloway was given a one-match ban in October for admitting swearing at referee Mike Dean in the tunnel following the 2-1 defeat against Blackburn.

On that occasion he was also fined £9,500 for his outburst.
