Phil Parkinson has been fined £3,000 by the Football Association, as well as being slapped with a two-match touchline ban.

Parkinson was sent to the stands during Wanderers' defeat at Leeds United in February, following an altercation with Pontus Jansson as part of a pitchside melee between players of both clubs.

Wanderers, for their part, have been fined £8,000 by the league authorities, while Leeds have accepted a misconduct charge that will see them pay £5,000.

A statement from a Football Association spokesperson read: "Leeds United and Bolton Wanderers have been fined £5,000 and £8,000 respectively following their EFL Championship fixture on 23 February 2019.

"Both clubs accepted charges for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 69th minute.

"In addition, Phil Parkinson has also been fined £3,000 and will serve a two-match touchline ban with immediate effect.

"The Bolton manager accepted a charge for misconduct in relation to his language and/or behaviour in the 69th minute."

Parkinson will miss Bolton's upcoming home fixtures against Millwall and Sheffield Wednesday.
