Stags deny charges
CHAD website

Stags have replied to the FA over their misconduct charge following the Swansea debacle, denying the charges and the ball is back in the FA's court.

Curle is also waiting on any decision over his behaviour following a half-time showdown with a police officer as he went to confront referee Lee Cable at Cambridge.

Mr Cable has actually backed Curle's claims over the actions of the policeman and in his report the referee has said he felt the officer used "excessive force and language to diffuse a situation which I didn't feel was out of control."

However, Mr Cable has asked the FA to look at a video of the end of the game. Curle had been asked to watch the second half from the stand and Mr Probert felt the manager's appearance to celebrate on the pitch at the end, along with the two players sent off, could have incited crowd trouble.
