Blackpool and Preston have been fined £5,000 each for failing to control their players in the final stages of their derby match last weekend.

The fine relates to an injury-time fight following Blackpool defender Callum Connolly’s challenge to Sean Maguire.

Four players were booked for their role in the incident, as Preston’s Alan Brown was sent off after they saw yellow for the second time in the match.

An FA statement read: “Blackpool and Preston North End FC have each been fined £5,000 after admitting to breaching FA rule E20.1 following the English Football League Championship match on Saturday 23 October 2021.

“Both clubs admitted their failure to ensure that their players behaved in an orderly manner during the 95th minute of the match and accepted the standard penalty kick.”
