Delap calls for SWP leniency

09 Feb 2009 - 12:02:48

Stoke City midfielder Rory Delap hopes the Football Association take a lenient approach to Shaun Wright-Phillips' violent conduct charge.

Wright-Phillips is facing a three-game ban after kicking out at the Potters midfielder during Stoke's 1-0 win over Manchester City at the Britannia Stadium on January 31.

The England winger lashed out after Delap hacked him down and then kicked the ball into him when grounded and the Stoke man has admitted that his actions led to Wright-Phillips' angry reaction.

"It would probably be harsh for him to get banned from any games," he told BBC Radio Stoke.

"After what I did, his reaction towards me was to be expected really."

City have already confirmed their intention to fight the charge and their appeal led to Wright-Phillips being able to play in Saturday's victory over Middlesbrough.
