Plymouth and West Brom have both been charged by the Football Association for failing to control their players during their clash on February 6.

Tempers boiled over in the closing stages of Albion's 1-0 win at Home Park with Baggies winger Jerome Thomas receiving a red card for a foul on David McNamee, which sparked a mass melee between players and officials.

Thomas has also been charged with violent conduct for his part in the incident.

Both clubs have until February 24 to respond to the charges, while Thomas must respond to his charge by 6pm on Wednesday February 10.
