Wilfried Zaha requests a personal hearing from the FA after admitting to an improper conduct charge, while Ian Holloway is fined £2,000.

On-loan Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha has requested a personal hearing from the Football Association over a charge of improper conduct.

The 20-year-old, who signed for Manchester United in the winter window, was charged for making a one-fingered gesture towards Leeds United fans during Palace's 2-2 draw last Saturday.

While Zaha has admitted the charge, the England international has requested a personal hearing over the incident.

Along with Zaha, manager Ian Holloway admitted a charge of improper conduct towards the match officials during the game and has been fined £2,000.

Zaha apologised for the gesture on Twitter.
