Roversgate investigation set to drag on

WANDERERS will have to continue waiting for a verdict into an investigation they allegedly broke third party ownership rules.

The FA and Football League are both currently investigating claims from Bristol Rovers that Wanderers breached regulations relating to third party ownership in the fall-out to Matt Phillips' 2010 transfer to Blackpool.

Both clubs had hoped for a swift resolution to the investigation but no announcement is likely to be made any time soon.

The Football League told the Bucks Free Press this week there is "no further news on this at this point in time".

Wanderers had admitted to breaching regulations relating to agent involvement over Phillips' move and were fined £10,000.

But Rovers pushed for a points deduction, which would have kept the Gas in the Football League at Blues' expense, after claiming Wanderers continued to flout the rules.

That punishment now seems unlikely after the fixtures for the new League Two season were confirmed last week.

It's looking likely that Wanderers will be getting another (bigger?) fine and possible points deduction for the coming season.

Will Rovers be punished when Wycombe are cleared of all allegations made by a desperate team who can't even take their relegation with any dignity?
I wish we had only won 1-0 at Torquay so our better goal difference would have been 1 and not 3 which would have made them even more angry!
