Gareth Barry Faces Misconduct Charges

  • Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry could miss the big game on Saturday at Newcastle following charges of "using abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official". The Football Association issued these charges with reference to the match against Manchester United held last weekend. It is likely that Barry will receive a one-match ban in addition to a  £8,000 fine if he admits to the charges. The midfielder can respond latest on Thursday.
