Football: Bulgarian side Plovdiv hit by another ban for crowd trouble
SOFIA (REUTERS) - Lokomotiv Plovdiv have been ordered to play their next home football match at a neutral ground, following crowd trouble in the league game against leaders Litex Lovech on Saturday.
The Bulgarian Football Union's disciplinary commission also fined Plovdiv 6,000 levs (S$5,300) on Tuesday after fans threw "numerous objects" on the pitch during the ill-tempered match.
Litex earned the honorary title of winter champions after thrashing the 2004 Bulgarian champions 5-2 in a game that saw four players sent off.
Colombian striker Wilmar Jordan grabbed a hat-trick as Litex took their points tally to 50 from 23 matches.
