Nottingham Forest season-ticket holder Robert Biggs has been jailed for twenty-four weeks for his sickening headbutt on Sheffield United captain Billy Sharp following Tuesday night’s Championship play-off semi-final second leg on the City Ground. The 30-year-old supporter, whose shameful actions sadly overshadowed his side’s dramatic penalty-shootout overcome the Blades, pleaded guilty to assaulting the striker at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.
Biggs from Ilkeston, Derbyshire will now spend six months behind bars, whilst he also received a 10-year ban from football.
A second charge, through which Biggs was excused of entering the sector of play has since been withdrawn.
