The Professional Footballers Association have backed Crawley midfielder Hope Akpan after he was racially abused on Twitter.

The 21-year-old was sent an abusive message following his dismissal against Oldham on Saturday and the matter is being investigated by police.

Iffy Onuora, the former Huddersfield and Gillingham striker who now works as the PFA's regional coach with responsibility for equality, told the Crawley Observer: "We have a duty of care and will support him in any way we can."
