FA to investigate alleged fight in Barnsley tunnel

The Football Association will be reviewing the referee’s match report from Saturday's League One match between Fleetwood Town and Barnsley, following an alleged altercation between the managers.

Fleetwood boss Joey Barton and Barnsley's Daniel Stendel, reportedly, had to be separated by stewards in the tunnel after the final whistle.

In a statement, Barnsley Football Club said: "The Club can confirm there was an alleged incident in the tunnel area that took place following the conclusion of today’s match, which South Yorkshire police are currently investigating.  The Club is assisting the police with its enquiries and, as a result, we are not in a position to make any further comment at this time."
