Sunderland, Burton, Fleetwood, and Charlton charged

A quartet of League One sides have been charged by the FA with failing to control their players following last weekend’s games.

Burton and Sunderland have until Friday to provide responses in relation to an incident in the 55th minute of their game.

Josh Earl was sent off for Burton for a second yellow card following a touchline melee with Aiden O’Brien.

Sunderland went on to win the game 3-0 courtesy of goals from Grant Leadbitter, Lynden Gooch and Charlie Wyke as the Black Cats moved back into the Play-Off places.

Similarly, Fleetwood and Charlton are charged with the same offence, FA Rule E20, for an incident that occurred in the 78th minute of their encounter.

In an entertaining 1-1 draw at Highbury, two players were booked for both sides following a melee after Charlton’s Jayden Stockley clashed with Fleetwood’s Jordan Rossiter.
