The FA have fined QPR and Brentford £7500 and £10,000 respectively following an incident in their recent game at Loftus Road, reports Sky Sports.
On March 12, QPR defeated Brentford 3-0 as they continue to improve under manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Brentford continue to plummet under manager Dean Smith.
In the match, a melee ensued when a tackle by QPR’s Karl Henry going in on a dangerous tackle on Brentford midfielder Ryan Woods.
With the match being a West London derby, the tempers were always likely to be flared and on the FaAs ruling the clubs have been fined for failing to control their players, despite both clubs denying the charge at first.
There was an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Tuesday though which found both clubs guilty, and warned the two sides over future conduct.
For the rest of the season QPR will hope to continue improving and whilst there are little chance of play-offs, they are looking to rebuild for next season – however, this fine will hurt their financial predicament.
As for Brentford they are looking to avoid relegation after the summer exodus of the squad which had got them top six last season.
