WANDERERS and Doncaster Rovers have been charged by the Football Association for failing to control their players during a League One game on November 23.

The incident, shortly before half time in a 3-0 win for the Whites, was sparked by a challenge by Joseph Olowu on Dapo Afolayan for which the Rovers defender was eventually shown a straight red card.

Players from both sides clashed in front of the dugout but no further action was taken by referee Steve Martin.

A statement from the FA released this morning read: “Bolton Wanderers FC and Doncaster Rovers FC have both been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20.1.

“It is alleged that they failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 44th minute of their EFL League One fixture on Tuesday, November 23 2021.

“Both clubs have until Wednesday, December 1, 2021, to respond.”

Ex-Wanderers defender David Wheater was unimpressed with the board's decision, however, adding on Twitter...

If found guilty, Wanderers will face a fine of between £2,500 and £37,500 for their indiscretion.
