East Midlands clubs charged

Published Add your comment

The Football Association have charged Nottingham Forest and Derby with failing to control their players and officials following the match between the teams on August 29.

Forest striker Nathan Tyson has also been charged with improper conduct.

After helping Forest record a 3-2 victory in the Coca-Cola Championship clash, Tyson picked up a corner flag and waved it in celebration in front of the Derby fans in the Bridgford End.

Rams players Dean Leacock and Gary Teale confronted Tyson, prompting the majority of the other players to rush over and get involved as stewards fought to keep supporters off the pitch.

All parties have until September 18 to respond to the charges.
