Neil Lennon: Bolton boss charged over 'biased referee' comments

Bolton have won only one of their first 10 Championship games this season

Bolton manager Neil Lennon has been charged with misconduct after accusing referee Darren Drysdale of bias in Saturday's Championship defeat at QPR.

A 94th-minute goal from Jay Emmanuel-Thomas secured a 4-3 win for QPR that left Bolton in the relegation zone.

"I've never seen a more biased performance from a referee in a long time," said Lennon, 44. "He gave QPR everything he possibly could."

Lennon has until 18:00 BST on Thursday to respond to the charge.

The Football Association charge alleges that Lennon's comments "allege or implied bias" on Drysdale "and/or bring the game into disrepute".

On Monday, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was charged with the same offence after claiming officials were "afraid" to give decisions in favour of his side.
