Wycombe and Sunderland have been fined by the Football Association following the touchline melee during last Saturday's 1-1 draw in League One.

Sunderland captain George Honeyman and home striker Nathan Tyson were sent off in the fracas that followed the visitors' late equaliser at Adams Park.

The two players were on the bench having already been substituted by their respective teams.

Wycombe were fined £7,250 and Sunderland £6,000 by an FA panel.

"Both clubs accepted charges for failing to ensure their players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour and/or violent conduct," the FA confirmed.

Jack Ross's Sunderland are third in League One, while Wycombe are 13th.
