Boro and Everton admit charges

Last updated : 01 February 2005 By Reggie Holdsworth
The FA charged the clubs under rule E22a following a 'mass brawl' during the match at the Riverside in mid-January.

The brawl followed an incident when Boro keeper Mark Schwarzer dropped a cross and Everton's Duncan Ferguson challenged for the ball as the Boro keeper lay on the floor.

Both clubs have requested a personal hearing which will take place in due course.
