Boro deny FA charge following Spurs brawl

Middlesbrough have denied a Football Association charge of failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion following the brawl which marred the end of their match at Tottenham last week.

Scuffles between players from both teams broke out four minutes from the end of Spurs' 2-1 win at White Hart Lane last Tuesday.

The fracas was triggered by a tackle from George Boateng on Aaron Lennon and involved almost a dozen players at one stage. Both Boateng and Tottenham's Didier Zokora were red-carded by referee Mark Halsey, although the Boro midfielder subsequently had his claim for wrongful dismissal upheld.

The two clubs were given until December 21 to respond and face a large fine if found guilty.

A statement on the FA's website read: 'Middlesbrough FC have denied a charge of failing to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the match against Tottenham Hotspur FC on December 5.

'They have requested a personal hearing. Tottenham were also charged with the same offence and have until December 21 to respond.'

League Two clubs Shrewsbury and Chester have also denied charges of failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion following their match on November 25. Both clubs have requested personal hearings.
