The FA are so far refusing to comment on the points penalty appeal made by Leeds Chairman Ken Bates.
Bates confirmed via the match day programme last Saturday that a request had been made for the FA to review the 15 points penalty imposed by the Football League before the start of the season. With Leeds already wiping out the deduction with an impressive 7-game winning streak, the Leeds supremo is determined to have the points restored, a move that would see Leeds slingshot right to the very top of League One.
'Although it is nice to enjoy six straight league wins, it in no way reduces our determination to have the 15 points, which have been unlawfully deducted, restored.
'Following representations to the Football Association, the matter will be considered at the FA board meeting on Monday (September 24)" Bates said.
He also went on to mention the fact that two members of the Football Association were actually part of the initial decision to deduct points from Leeds, though they will have no say in the proceedings:
"Both Mr Sheepshanks (Ipswich Town) and Mr Mawhinney (the Football League president) are members of the board so they are entitled to attend but they will not be allowed to speak on the subject because of their conflict of interest."
So far however the FA have turned it into somewhat of a secret, with no news of a decision 4 days later. A spokesman from the FA told the Yorkshire Evening Post that so far it was being kept a private matter, and there wasn`t a great deal that could be said at the moment.
Lets just hope they aren`t sweeping this one under the carpet.
