Wolves have been charged by the Football Association with failing to control fans following homophobic chanting in last month's game against Chelsea. Three arrests were made following Wolves' 1-0 victory over the Blues on April 8 relating to alleged offensive chants in the second half, during which warnings were delivered over the public address system. The FA has previously warned that clubs will be subject disciplinary action for discriminatory behaviour by supporters and has taken action against Wolves, who have until May 15 to respond. "Wolverhampton Wanderers have been charged with two breaches of FA Rule E21 following their Premier League match against Chelsea on Saturday 8 April," the FA said. "It is alleged that, during the 61st and 71st minutes of the fixture, the club failed to ensure that spectators and/or its supporters, and anyone purporting to be its supporters or followers, conduct themselves in an orderly fashion, and do not use words or otherwise behave in a way which is improper, offensive, abusive, indecent, or insulting with either express or implied reference to sexual orientation."
