Blackburn Rovers have been charged with misconduct by The Football Association for crowd behaviour against Ipswich Town last season.

Rovers were beaten 1-0 by the Tractor Boys on Good Friday with Connor Chaplin's early strike ensuring the win, live on Sky Sports.

Oddly, the club have now been charged several months later for the behaviour of home supporters during the match. 

The game was not littered with any particularly spicy moments, other than controversy at the decision to rule out Joe Rankin-Costello's equaliser in the first half after Sam Szmodics was judged to be offside.

The FA have given Rovers until Monday, June 24, to respond to the charge.

A statement from FA Spokesman on X said: "Blackburn Rovers have been charged with misconduct in relation to crowd control at their EFL Championship game against Ipswich Town on Friday 29 March. 

"It's alleged that the club failed to ensure its spectators and/or supporters (and anyone purporting to be supporters or followers) conduct themselves in an orderly fashion and don't: use words or otherwise behave in an improper, threatening or provocative way; and throw missiles or other potentially harmful or dangerous objects towards the pitch. 

"Blackburn Rovers have until Monday 24 June to provide a response."

This is a standard FA statement for any crowd issues, ranging from pitch invasions to foul and abusive chanting. 

The severity of the offence could determine the punishment, with a fine the most likely outcome, if Rovers accept the charge.

Preston North End were fined £10,000 and ordered to implement an action plan following the same misconduct charge earlier this month.

Portsmouth and Nottingham Forest were also found to have breached FA guidelines for the same reason before the campaign ended.

Blackburn Rovers have not yet commented on the matter.
