Sligo Rovers are vowing to fight their corner amid claims they fielded an ineligible player last week.
The FAI say Adam McDonnell should have been suspended for the 2-nil win over Dundalk in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.
If found guilty, Sligo could see the three points awarded to Dundalk.
In a statement released on the club website, Sligo informed supporters of the situation.
“Sligo Rovers wish to inform supporters and sponsors of a notice received this afternoon to appear before the FAI disciplinary control unit (DCU) later this week.
The charge arises out of Adam McDonnell’s appearance against Dundalk on Monday August 29th, when allegedly suspended. The potential sanction in the event of an adverse finding is an overturning of the result.
The club received contradictory communications from the FAI on Adam’s possible suspension. Legal advice has been taken and the club will be represented at the FAI hearing.”
