New Straits Times - - Sport -

LON­DON: Mid­dles­brough have been charged by the Eng­land FA for fail­ing to con­trol their play­ers dur­ing Sun­day’s 2-2 draw with Manch­ester City.

Sev­eral Mid­dles­brough play­ers re­acted af­ter ref­eree Kevin Friend awarded a penalty for de­fender Marten de Roon’s chal­lenge on Leroy Sane in the sec­ond half.

“It is al­leged that in or around the 66th minute of the fix­ture, the club failed to en­sure that its play­ers con­ducted them­selves in an or­derly fash­ion,” the FA said in a state­ment.

Mid­dles­brough have un­til to­day to re­spond to the charge.

City striker Ser­gio Aguero scored the re­sult­ing penalty to level the game 1-1, with the vis­i­tors com­ing from be­hind again to se­cure a 2-2 draw af­ter an 85th minute Gabriel Je­sus strike.

The re­sult left 19th-placed Mid­dles­brough six points adrift of safety with three games to play. Reuters
