WBA’s Tamas hit by FA charge

The Football Association took action over the incident which
occurred late in the Baggies’ 1-0 Premier League win at Carrow Road
on Sunday. Albion defender Tamas was given until 6pm on Tuesday to
respond to the charge, which would carry an automatic three-match
ban if accepted. The 27-year-old Romanian caught Vaughan with an
elbow to the face during a stoppage-time corner, something Norwich
boss Paul Lambert insisted should have brought a penalty. He added:
“James has gone to see the plastic surgeon. It’s a bad one. It has
gone straight through the lip and they can’t just stitch it up.”
Former Everton striker Vaughan later wrote on Twitter: “Back home!
plastic surgeon sorted me out! think i will have 2 bite my lip over
the ‘incident’ o wait already done that!” West Brom manager Roy
Hodgson defended Tamas, saying he was “100% convinced it is
unintentional”. He added: “It does not make it any better for
Vaughan whether you have got caught intentionally or accidentally –
it is still a painful blow.”
