Dawson to serve one game ban

23 March 2015

Hearing clears McAuley of wrong-doing

CRAIG Dawson will miss Albion's Barclays Premier League clash against Queens Park Rangers on April 4.

This follows an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today, where a claim of mistaken identity in relation to Gareth McAuley was successful.

McAuley was wrongly dismissed by referee Neil Swarbrick for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity during the opening stages of Saturday's game at Manchester City.

The offence had been committed by Dawson.

The standard punishment of a one-match suspension has been transferred to Dawson and will be served with immediate effect.
