Football briefs: Luton | Bobby Williamson | Under-21 | Huddersfield | Nottingham Forest
LUTON manager Paul Buckle will advise his players to remain on the pitch if they are racially abused during tomorrow’s FA Cup fifth-round tie against Millwall.
Millwall this week reopened an investigation into the conduct of their fans during November’s game against Leeds after a documentary for Sky Sports News showed Lions fans hurling racist insults at Senegalese striker El-Hadji Diouf. The FA are also investigating footage of the match.
Williamson denies link to Kenya job
Bobby Williamson has been forced to deny he is about to become Victor Wanyama’s new Kenya national team coach. The Scot has been in charge of Uganda since replacing Csaba Laszlo in 2008 but has been linked with the vacant post.
Kenya are on the hunt for a new manager after Frenchman Henri Michel stood down in December. Former Kilmarnock and Hibs manager Williamson said: “I am happy here. I have a job. Why should I apply for a Kenyan job? I have not spoken to anybody from the Kenyan FA.” Williamson is contracted with Uganda until 2014.
