Rodgers Wary Of Possible Play-Offs Delay

Rodgers Wary Of Possible Play-Offs Delay

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says he is wary that the play-off games may be delayed slightly if QPR have to appeal against a possible points deduction.

The Championship League leaders are under investigation by the FA for breaching a number of charges and there has been media talk that they could get 15 points deducted, which would see them drop down a few places into the play-offs.

If QPR are found guilty and do get points taken away, they may appeal the decision which could the play-off fixtures.

Rodgers said:

'We've sort of been given an indication if there was the possibility of an appeal if something happens that... you know.

'I think it's only moved a few days pending the appeal, but it's one where we're delighted to be in the situation we're in and we won't be crying over a few days extra recovery.

'Let's wait and see what happens. There's a judgement next Friday. Everyone will know where they stand and we'll take it from there.

'It's the least of my worries. I can only be proud of our club and my players and whatever happens next week, we'll take it and run with it.'

'I think it's ridiculous that it's dragged on so long if I'm being honest,'

'Surely if you've got a rule in place, then there's a sanction alongside that whatever happens so you should know near enough straight away.

'But to drag on and then be brought up the day before the end of the season is incredible really.'
