Huddersfield Town and Burton Albion met in the Championship earlier this month

Burton Albion and Huddersfield Town have been fined £5,000 and £12,500 respectively following their Championship fixture on 1 April 2017.

Both clubs admitted an FA charge of failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in or around the 88th minute of the match.

Burton Albion received the standard penalty for the breach. However, as this was Huddersfield Town’s second breach of Rule E20 in a 12-month period, following a similar incident during their fixture against Leeds United on 5 February 2017, the case was considered to be ‘non-standard’.
