Man questioned over fraud

A Chinese man was detained at a League One football match by investigators probing an alleged overseas betting syndicate fraud.

He was held during the Coventry City v Crawley Town match at Sixfields Stadium in Northampton yesterday, which ended in a 2-2 draw.

Sussex Police said the man was not arrested but was spoken to by the FA Fraud unit in relation to an alleged overseas betting syndicate fraud.

Some half decent news for Cov

Crisis club Coventry have signed striker Mathieu Manset after being given special dispensation by the Football League.

The Sky Blues have been operating under a transfer embargo since the start of March but manager Steven Pressley has finally been able to bring in a new face to bolster his threadbare ranks.

City have not yet fully exited the embargo but they have now been granted permission to sign players under the League's supervision.

No action over Cov fracas

The Football Association is unlikely to take any disciplinary action following a minor pitch invasion by Coventry supporters during Saturday's Sky Bet League One clash at Crawley, Press Association Sport understands.

A dozen or so Sky Blues fans - frustrated by off-field events at the crisis club - went on to the Broadfield Stadium pitch and held up play for three minutes after seeing their side go 2-0 down midway through the first half.

Stewards and police chased the invaders before escorting them off the field of play, although it is currently unconfirmed as to whether any arrests were made by Sussex Police.
