Beckford charged after Forde elbow

11 February 2009 03:28
Beckford, who scored both goals in Leeds' televised 2-0 win over the Lions at Elland Road on Monday, faces a three-game ban if he is found guilty.

Referee Alan Wiley appeared to book Beckford for the incident, which occurred in the 65th minute while the players were waiting for a corner, meaning under FIFA rules he could not be punished further retrospectively.

But Wiley has since confirmed in his report that the yellow card was shown for pushing immediately prior to the incident.

Lions boss Kenny Jackett said afterwards: "I didn't see the offence but I've seen my goalkeeper's jaw and eye and they don't look good. Some key decisions didn't go our way."
