Leeds United and Burnley charged by FA



Have your say

Leeds United and Burnley have been charged by the Football Association with failing to ensure that their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.

The charge relates to the fiery game between the two sides at Elland Road on April 30, which Leeds won 1-0 thanks to a goal by Ross McCormack.

Chris McCann’s high tackle on Max Gradel sparked a melee in the 57th minute, for which the Clarets midfielder was shown one of eight yellow cards in the game.

Both clubs have until 4pm tomorrow (Friday, May 6) to respond.
