Nottingham Forest fans react as Dwight Gayle is charged by the FA

According to The Telegraph, West Bromwich Albion striker Dwight Gayle has been charged by the FA for diving after he won a penalty in the 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest at The Hawthorns on Tuesday night, and Reds fans have been quick to react on Twitter.

Martin O’Neill’s men looked to be on course to pick up a vital three points in their bid to secure a top-six finish in the Championship this season as they led 2-1 entering the closing stages, until Gayle went down in the area just a couple of minutes from time.

Referee Lee Mason awarded the spot-kick, but now the FA has charged the 28-year-old attacker with “successful deception of a match official” after an independent panel reviewed the incident and came to a unanimous decision, and he could be dealt a two-match ban.

Forest supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the situation, and while one simply said “good”, another believes “the FA are setting a dangerous precedent”.
