Jones hit with misconduct charge

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has been charged with misconduct after being sent to the stand during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Barnsley.

Jones was sent from the dug-out by referee Phil Dowd for protesting that his side had been denied a penalty.

But he will fight the charge: "I don't see why I should be punished," he said.

"I was angry with the referee because I think he was the only person in the stadium that didn't think it was a penalty. He didn't make a big call."

No date has yet been set by the Football Association of Wales for the hearing, but if found guilty, Jones could face a fine or a touchline ban.

Jones also criticised the referee to sending him to the stand to sit among the Barnsley supporters, claiming his safety was put at risk.

"To send me the stand is crazy because he's then endangering me by sending me through the crowd, who are just going to abuse me," Jones added.

"On his part I felt he got both things wrong - he should've given us a penalty and he shouldn't have sent me to the stand because all I told him was that he missed the penalty.

"I'll have to leave it in the hands of the FAW and what they decide, but he [Dowd] has got away with it at the end of the day because it's a big decision for us.

"It's the first time I've been sent to the stand in my career and hopefully it'll be the last."
