Paul Lambert hit with FA misconduct charge

NORWICH City manager Paul Lambert and head of football operations Gary Karsa have been charged with misconduct by the Football Association.

The charge relates to the Coca-Cola League One leaders' 3-1 defeat to Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on Good Friday.

During the game, former Celtic and Scotland midfielder Lambert was sent to the stands by referee Eddie Ilderton after he had stepped on to the pitch to kick the ball back for a free-kick to be taken. Karsa followed him after reacting angrily to the decision.

Both men have until 15 April to respond to the charge.
