Luton and Swansea have been charged by the Football Association after they 'failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion' during the closing stages of last weekend's clash at the Liberty Stadium.

Late in the game, with Town won 1-0, a number of sliding challenges went in, leading to a fracas between both sets of players, with Swans winger Jordon Garrick sent off for throwing a punch towards Hatters' goalscorer James Collins.

Home boss Steve Cooper had said: "It's a clear red. I've got no arguments.

"I thought the referee caused the melee, but I don't want my comment on the referee to hide the fact that Jordon has done something that is a clear red."

An FA statement released today read: "Both Swansea City FC and Luton Town FC have been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20 following their fixture in the EFL Championship on Saturday.

"It is alleged that they failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 83rd minute of the fixture.

"The clubs have until Monday (July 6) to provide their respective responses."
