FA investigate Addicks clash with Norwich THE Football Association have confirmed they are investigating a clash between Norwich and Charlton players at Carrow Road on Saturday. Players from both sides came together in the tunnel at half-time, moments after Addicks midfielder Nicky Bailey had clashed with Norwich captain Grant Holt. When the half-time whistle blew, a number of City players confronted the referee, Steve Tanner who included the incident in his match report. The match also featured a highly- controversial last-minute equaliser, scored by Holt as the League One clash ended in a 2-2 draw. An FA spokesman said: We are aware of the incident in question and we are making enquiries accordingly. Depending on those enquiries, we will decide if any further action will be necessary. Renault race on after row RENAULT will continue to compete in F1, despite the furore over the Crashgate race-fixing scandal. The French team were handed a suspended disqualification over the plot involving boss Flavio Briatore -- now banned for life -- Pat Symonds and Nelson Piquet Jnr to cause a crash in last years Singapore Grand Prix. Ali Malek QC, representing Renault, said: We are keen to put this whole affair behind us. It was a ridiculous plot, a one-off, and Renault knows nothing like this can ever happen again. It is our intention to draw the line, and to put this sad history behind us. Calm: Police separate fans on Saturday Green fury as Hammers fall to Bolt from blue BOLTON ........ 3 WEST HAM....1 AET;1-1AT90MINS.CARLINGCUP3RDRND Late leveller: Kevin Davies equalises for Bolton ROBERT GREEN has blasted his sloppy West Ham team- mates after a disappointing 3-1 Carling Cup exit at Bolton. The Hammers were 1-0 up thanks to Herita Ilungas second-half goal but conceded a set-piece equaliser to Kevin Davies in the closing minutes of normal time. Extra-time goals from Gary Cahill and Johan Elmander --the 10m strikers first in 22 games for Bolton -- dumped Gianfranco Zolas side out of the competition. And England keeper Green, who was outstanding despite West Hams defensive lapses, said: We didnt play any football in the second half and I think were getting above ourselves, thinking were better then we are at the moment. Were in a position where we have to get results. Like Saturday, we didnt defend well for 90 minutes and didnt take our chances. We were sloppy at both ends and you know when you come to Bolton youre going to concede free-kicks and corners and so it proved. The Hammers. with just four points from give Premier League games, go to Manchester City on Monday and Green accepts: Were going to be big underdogs. Were going to have to buck up our ideas before then to really nail down what were about. Dont underestimate Watt a difference Henrys words made ARSENAL........ 2 WEST BROM... 0 CARLING CUP 3RD ROUND ARSENALS latest striking prodigy Sanchez Watt believes Thierry Henrys words of wisdom set him on the path to fame and fortune. Despite his exotic sounding name, the 18-year-old was born and bred in London and capped his full debut with his first senior goal, as a young Arsenal side eventually overcame West Brom last night. Watt has had the benefit of growing up around stars like Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabregas. But it is the advice of the clubs all-time leading goalscorer, Henry, that still rings in his ears. He said: I was here when Thierry was here. I didnt get to play with him but I still asked him questions off the pitch when he was free. I was about 14 when I spoke to him but it was about my career, not many people get that chance. He said: Be calm in front of goal and when the ball is moving, you dont have to keep making long runs. Make it short and sharp and just take it from there. Other than his goal, Watt looked extremely raw in comparison to star of the show Jack Wilshere, who again showed maturity beyond his years. But opposition boss, Roberto Di Matteo, was far from impressed by the way in which he reacted to Jerome Thomas challenge, which saw the former Arsenal winger sent-off. Thomas went to shake hands with Wilshere, he refused and Thomas reacted, so it was a red card, the Italian said. But there was an exchange of words and there was a reaction. I am disappointed Wilshere did not accept his hand but that is part of the game.
