The FA were awaiting the official report from referee Barry Knight, about a bottle being thrown onto the pitch at Loftus Road last night, before coming to any conclusions, although it seems likely that they will investigate.
“Following a bottle being thrown onto the pitch during the Premier League match between Fulham and Aston Villa at Loftus Road last night, we can confirm the FA are aware of the incident and the seriousness of its nature,” the FA have stated.
“We will study the referee’s report before making any further comment at this stage.”
Fulham were today reported to have identified the alleged culprit following a promise to ban him for life from attending a home match.
This could be enough to pre-empt official censure, although the FA may consider Fulham should be held responsible for the actions of their supporters.
