Notts County striker Lee Hughes has pleaded not guilty to a charge of sexual assault.
Hughes was arrested at the team's hotel in Croydon in December and was taken into custody, before being released on bail.
However, the 35-year-old was charged with the offence at the end of last month.
Earlier today Hughes denied the charge Croydon Magistrates' Court and elected to be tried at a Crown Court.
The case has been adjourned until Wednesday, March 21.
