The incident occured in the 86th minute when Robins striker Famara Diedhiou appeared to kick-out at a Charlton player on the ground, subsequently being shown a straight red card and sparking a scuffle between both sets of players.

As a result, the FA confirmed that Charlton and Bristol had been charged £12,500 and £10,000 respectively with the club’s announcing the decision on Tuesday afternoon.
The match ended in a dramatic 2-1 victory to Lee Johnson’s side with Josh Brownhill netting a 98th minute winner to send the home fans wild and the Addicks back home empty handed.
However, with the bigger fine being levied against Lee Bowyer’s side, many fans have responded angrily to the charge.
Here is what they had to say…
Am I reading correctly? It was our player kicked on the ground three times but we get the bigger fine? 🤷♂️
