THE Football Association has written to Stockport County to request further evidence of claims that striker Liam Dickinson was bitten by Chester defender Sean Hessey on Saturday.
Hatters manager Jim Gannon described the alleged incident towards the end of his team's 2-1 win at the Saunders Honda as 'despicable'.
Referee Chris Foy failed to see the two players clash but he was informed of the allegations later and mentioned it in his report.
A spokesman for the FA yesterday confirmed: 'We have written to Liam Dickinson and Stockport asking for any information to back up their claims. We will wait to see what they come back with.'
County claim Dickinson, who scored both Stockport goals, was held down and bitten on the shoulder by Hessey with around 10 minutes remaining.
Gannon showed the referee Dickinson's injury after the game and now wants the FA to punish Hessey.
Chester manager Keith Curle has since viewed a video of the incident but the footage is inconclusive.
In last week's Chronicle, Blues chairman Stephen Vaughan criticised the club's players for their poor disciplinary record.
Chester - who have a suspended FA fine hanging over them due to last season's indiscretions - have picked up more than 60 yellow cards and four reds this term, but Curle says the problem is being addressed.
The Chester boss said: 'There is a petulant element in the football club that is gradually being eradicated.
'The players are learning - slowly - but it's an expensive learning curve for them. Everyone who is booked for a silly offence gets fined.'
