Huddersfield & Burton given FA fine for failing to control players

Huddersfield v Burton
Dean Whitehead and Tom Flanagan were given yellow cards after grabbing each other

Huddersfield have been fined £12,500 and Burton Albion must pay £5,000 after admitting a Football Association charge of failing to control their players.

The charge related to an incident which led to Huddersfield's Dean Whitehead being sent off during a 1-0 defeat at the John Smith's Stadium on 1 April.

Whitehead was given a second yellow card after a clash with Tom Flanagan.

Huddersfield have been handed a bigger fine after being punished for a similar incident against Leeds in February.

The FA saidexternal-link players failed to conduct themselves "in an orderly fashion" around the 88th minute of the Championship match.

Burton moved up to 19th thanks to Jackson Irvine's stoppage-time winner, four points off the relegation places.
