Newport’s Ryan Inniss charged after West Ham player makes biting accusation

Newport County defender Ryan Inniss was charged with conduct after an accusation has been made that he tad an opponent.
Inniss, on a loan from Crystal Palace, has been shown a red card in the closing stages of Wednesday’s EFL Trophy clash with West Ham U21s.
The 24-year-old was dismissed following an incident with Hammers youngster Reece Hannam late in the game.
County manager Michael Flynn revealed after the game that Inniss was blessed to have bitten at Hannam.
Flynn explained:”Their player said he has bitten, so I’ll have a look at that and find out exactly what happened. When he has, it is inexcusable and I will not be fighting his corner.”
Inniss could have served a ban but that absence may be in the Football Association that he had been charged over the incident.
An FA spokesperson stated:”Ryan Inniss has been charged with being in breach of FA Rule E3(1) after a dismissal during the EFL Trophy match involving Newport County and West Ham Utd U21s on Wednesday [04/09/19].
“It is alleged that his behaviour or around the 90th minute represents violent behaviour, in circumstances where the standard punishment that would otherwise apply is obviously inadequate. The player has before 18:00 Tuesday 10 September 2019 to provide a reply.”
