No FA action for Sonko or Hunt
The Football Association has confirmed that no disciplinary action is to take place following the incidents that saw Chelsea goalkeepers Carlo Cudicini and Petr Cech injured at the Madejski Stadium earlier this month.
Cech suffered a fractured skull after a collision with Reading's Stephen Hunt and deputy keeper Cudicini was also hospitalised after suffering concussion from a clash with Royals defender Ibrahima Sonko that led to the Italian goalie swallowing his tongue.
The F.A released a statement saying 'The FA has reviewed the incidents involving Stephen Hunt/Petr Cech and Ibrahima Sonko/Carlo Cudicini and has contacted referee Mike Riley, who confirmed that the match officials saw both incidents at the time. There will therefore be no further action.'
This news is positive for the Berkshire club after already losing Dave Kitson, Bobby Convey and Graeme Murty to injury recently.
