The Football Association have handed charges to Leeds United, Bolton Wanderers and Trotters manager Phil Parkinson.

The two clubs have been charged over the behaviour of their players in Saturday's Championship clash at Elland Road, during which a rash challenge from Wanderers forward Josh Magennis sparked a touchline fracas which resulted in Parkinson being sent to the stands by referee Tony Harrington.

All parties have until 6pm on Friday to contest the charge, which is likely to result in fines and potentially a touchline ban for the Bolton boss.

In an official statement, an FA Spokesperson said: "Leeds United and Bolton Wanderers have been charged following their EFL Championship fixture on Saturday [23 February 2019].

"It is alleged that they failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 69th minute.

"In addition, Phil Parkinson has also been charged with misconduct in relation to his behaviour in the 69th minute.

"Both clubs and the Bolton manager have until 18:00 on 01 March 2019 to respond to the charge."
