Sunderland and Wycombe have both been fined by the FA following the touchline melee which took place at Adams Park last weekend.

The Black Cats have been charged £6,000, while Wanderers have been hit with a £7,250 fine for their involvements in the 95th-minute indecent.

Sunderland's George Honeyman and Wycombe's Nathan Tyson were both sent off after the two benches collided in stoppage-time.

Both clubs have accepted the charges for 'failing to ensure their players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour and/or violent conduct during the 95th minute.'

Sunderland were fined for a similar indecent earlier in the season after the Black Cats were charged £2,500 following their 2-1 win at Bradford City.

Black Cats captain Honeyman recieved a three-game league ban following his dismissal but will be available for the Checkatrade Trophy final at Wembley following an appeal.
