Charlton Athletic request EFL to appeal independent disciplinary commission ruling on Sheffield Wednesday

Charlton have asked the EFL to appeal an independent disciplinary commission’s decision to penalise Sheffield Wednesday next season – and not enforce it for the 2019-20 campaign.

The Owls were hit with a 12-point deduction due to spending rule breaches. If that deduction had taken place now then it would have seen them relegated to League One with the Addicks winning a reprieve.

It has been reported that Wednesday have appealed the punishment.

The EFL recently won an appeal to overturn an independent disciplinary commission relating to Macclesfield Town – it saw a points penalty enforced immediately which made them drop into the National League instead of Stevenage.

Charlton director Marian Mihail told the South London Press: “I came to the club when it had a lot of financial difficulties. I know what we all had to do to make sure the players got on the pitch and were getting paid.

“We have our own opinion which until this appeal is concluded we’re not going to share – but afterwards we will.

“Right now we have asked the EFL on two occasions to appeal the decision of the independent disciplinary committee and we’re waiting to hear back.

“We don’t know if they have appealed the decision or not.

“If time will run out we will look into the possibility of us appealing it ourselves. But from what I’ve seen from the rules in the UK you have on this, it has to be the EFL.”
