Bailey in the clear

05 February 2007 11:13
The Football Association has withdrawn a charge of improper conduct against QPR midfielder Stefan Bailey. The 19-year-old had been charged after a brawl in the FA Cup third round replay between John Gregory's side and Luton Town on 23 January. Bailey had admitted the charge and requested a personal hearing but, following a review, the FA has decided to drop the charge. The two clubs still face charges of failing to control their players - and have until February 12 to respond. Bailey was sent off for a foul on Ahmet Brkovic and referee Michael Jones was left holding his nose after Bailey and Damion Stewart disputed his decision.
