IPSWICH Town manager Jim Magilton is making a personal appearance today to defend a Football Association disciplinary charge following the Coca-Cola Championship game at Burnley on October 2.

Pablo Counago had a goal disallowed five minutes from the end of a game that ended 2-2.

Magilton was invited into the dressing room of referee Clive Webster after the pre-arranged delay following the end of the game.

His visit resulted in the charge, and Magilton has requested a personal hearing. He will travel to London today.

He was given a touchline ban last season after an incident at Preston when he was sent to the stands.
