FA to probe ´unusual betting pattern´

Next Story
The Football Association "will look very closely" at Accrington´s 2-0 defeat by Bury on Saturday after some bookmakers stopped taking bets on the match having seen "an unusual amount of money" being placed.

Both William Hill and Coral closed their book on the League Two game while betting exchange Betfair reported action far exceeding fixtures of a similar profile.

Graham Sharpe of William Hill told the Sunday Mirror: "We were seeing substantial money for just one result, Bury to win. We shortened the price four times and we were still seeing people wanting to bet."
