Both Yeovil Town and Chesterfield have been hit by fines by the Football Association. Both were charged with failing to control their players in the recent 2-2 draw at the B2Net Stadium. The charge related to a 90th minute melee sparked by Chesterfield's Mark Allott man-handling Yeovil's Ed Upson.
Both clubs have been fined £2,500, with each side admitting the charge upon their submissions to the FA.
Last week, manager Terry Skiverton spoke about what had caused the incident to the Western Gazette. He didn't reveal which way the club had responded to the charge, but indicated that he would not be happy if it led to the club receiving a large fine:
"The players at the time felt the boy (Mark Allott) fouled Ed Upson, then he stood over the top of him and as he has gestured with his head Bondz N'Gala has thought that he has spat at him, so that is why Bondz has come over. We later found out that he had not spat at him but there was another player that came over and kicked Ed in the back. I do not think Bondz has raised his hands to anyone but we will have to see what comes back. We have given our reply to the FA on the charge, but we will be very aggrieved if it does come back and we are fined a lot of money."
