Referee Darren Drysdale was removed from the second division game between Southend and Bolton on Saturday, the EFL has confirmed

Drysdale was charged with improper conduct by the Football Association on Wednesday because of his confrontation with Ipswich midfielder Alan Judge

The 50-year-old Lincolnshire official appeared to face the judge and lean his head in the Republic of Ireland international after the midfielder’s appeal for a penalty was denied during Ipswich’s goalless draw with Northampton on Tuesday night

Drysdale was supposed to be overseeing the Southend v Bolton game this weekend but that is now being directed by Declan Bourne

“I fully understand that it is important for us as referees to remain calm and professional with the players throughout the game,” said Drysdale in a statement from Professional Game Match Officials Limited

“I’m sorry I didn’t do this last night and I can only apologize to Alan and Ipswich Town”
