first_img1 Blackpool Blackpool have been hit with a suspended three-point deduction following the pitch invasion that forced their Sky Bet Championship clash with Huddersfield to be abandoned in May.Seasiders supporters entered the field of play in the second half of the season-ending fixture with the Terriers in protest at the club’s owners, eventually forcing the game to be called off when they did not move for over an hour.Last week the Football Association fined the Tangerines £50,000 and decreed they would be made to play a competitive match behind closed doors next season if another game was to be disrupted by fans.A commission set up by the Football League has now announced its ruling on the matter, handing Blackpool a three-point deduction which is suspended for two seasons.However, despite an application from the Football League to force Blackpool to compensate Huddersfield supporters following the abandonment, the commission has ruled the club is not required to reimburse travelling Terriers fans.last_img
