A STAFFORD Rangers fan is facing a possible ban after a throwing incident at Marston Road on Tuesday night.
The supporter, believed to be from the Birmingham area, was seen by several people throwing a waste paper bin onto the pitch as the players and officials headed for the player's tunnel at the end of the league game against Grantham Town.
Rangers secretary Mike Hughes confirmed that a bin had been thrown and was witnessed by several other people leaving the ground.
"We are waiting on the report from the referee (David Plowwright) and dependant on that report it is likely will impose a ban on the person concerned," said Hughes.
No one was struck by the bin, but it is believed club officials spoke with the supporter and Hughes described the incident as "absolutely senseless."
"We understand that people do get frustrated at games, but we all have to behave in a civilised manner. To throw something on to the field of play is not acceptable behaviour," said Hughes.
"It is a motive game and we all get frustrated, but that's the game. We all have to keep those frustrations in check."
The match had seen Rangers let slip a 2-0 interval lead in the closing stages of the game and draw 2-2.
Grantham had grabbed their equaliser in the eighth minute of stoppage time after having a player red-carded late on.
Rangers face higher league Skrill North outfit Boston United in the FA Cup second qualifying round at Marston Road on Saturday (3pm).
Last season's top scorer Danny Quinn faces a late fitness test on a hamstring injury that forced him to miss the Grantham game.
Meanwhile, midfielder Martyn Jackson has returned to Telford after a month on loan with the Boro.
