Suspended linesmen Dave Bryan and Ceri Richards will not officiate in the Premier League again this season following their blunders earlier this month.

Linesmen Dave Bryan and Ceri Richards will not officiate in the Premier League again this season following their blunders earlier this month.

Bryan was the assistant who failed to raise his flag as Chelsea scored two offside goals in the 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic on Saturday, April 7.

A day later, Richards was at the centre of further controversy as he allowed the award of a penalty kick to Manchester United in their 2-0 win over Queens Park Rangers, despite Ashley Young being in an offside position.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Shaun Derry was also sent off for fouling Young and had his appeal against a one-match ban rejected.

Bryan was dropped from touchline duty for Liverpool's 3-2 win over Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night and the pair will now remain suspended until next season, according to The Mirror.
