Bournemouth and Watford indict by FA after Vitality Stadium skirmish

Tue 02 March 2021 | 20:07

Bournemouth and Watford have both been accused of unethical behavior after a late quarrel defaced a weekend ago's league game at the Vitality Stadium.


Joao Pedro

and Bournemouth's

Jack Wilshere

were both shipped off by official Tony Harrington after losing their composure during stoppage-time. 

The scuffle, which spoiled Bournemouth's 1-0 victory, was started by Pedro's late sliding tackle on Jefferson Lerma. Wilshere and Pedro were both shipped off in the wake of getting their second yellow cards. 

A Football Association statement said:

"AFC Bournemouth and Watford FC have both been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20 following their EFL Championship fixture on Saturday 27th February.

"Both clubs allegedly failed to ensure that their players and/or club officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 96th minute of the fixture and they have until Friday 5th March to provide their responses."

Bournemouth winger Arnaut Danjuma scored the decisive goal of the match in minute 61. 

The Cherries are 6th in the


standings, eight points behind promotion prospects Watford in the third position.
