Windass backed over biting claims
Dean Windass
Windass is being investigated by the FA
Bradford have moved to defend striker Dean Windass following accusations he bit two players in recent matches.

Southend goalkeeper Darryl Flahavan claims Windass bit him during their 2-0 win at Valley Parade in August, but decided against reporting the incident.

Bournemouth's Marcus Browning has since claimed he too was bitten by Windass in their recent win against Bradford.

Bradford secretary Jon Pollard said: "The match officials in both games saw nothing. Dean maintains his innocence."

The Football Association is investigating two biting allegations.

But Pollard does not believe Windass is guilty.

He added: "Having seen the inside of Dean's cut lip after the alleged Bournemouth incident it looks more like somebody has forced his arm in his mouth rather than Dean having bitten the player."
