Scunthorpe charged by FA

Last updated : 27 January 2006 By Luke Thornhill
The fight was sparked by a late tackle on Ian Baraclough by Rovers midfielder James Coppinger, for which he was shown a straight red card.

Veteran Iron striker Steve Torpey was also sent off for violent conduct after confronting Coppinger.

Torpey later issued an apology, with manager Brian Laws stating that the front-man's future at the club may be in doubt.

Both clubs have been charged under FA Rule E20(a) - failing to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.

United and Rovers have until February 7 to answer the charge.
