Referee is hit in face by bottle thrown from stands during Charlton’s defeat to Fleetwood as Addicks face punishment –

CHARLTON could face punishment after referee Carl Boyeson was hit by a missile aimed from the stands at The Valley.

He was hit in the face by a plastic drinks bottle as he left the pitch at the end of the home side’s 2-1 defeat by Fleetwood Town.

The official did not appear to be badly harmed and immediately headed down the stadium’s extendable tunnel. 

But Addicks’ boss Dean Holden condemned the incident and expects it to be included in Boyeson’s post-match report to the FA.

The home fans seemed to be angered by the 79th minute straight red card dismissal of Charlton defender Ryan Inniss  – although it was his third sending off of the season.

Holden said: “It’s disappointing.

“Obviously, as a football club, we can not condone this kind of behaviour at all.

“It doesn’t matter what has gone on out on the pitch. This should never happen.

“I assume it will be in the referee’s report.”

Boyeson is a long-serving 53-year-old official from East Yorkshire who refereed the 2019-20 EFL Trophy final between Portsmouth and Salford.

Defender Inniss could now face a five-match ban after his third dismissal of the campaign.

Charlton boss Holden added: “I will not condemn referees because it’s a tough job.

“But it was never a sending off. It wasn’t a goalscoring opportunity.”
