The on-pitch bust-up between Reading captain Paul McShane and midfielder Danny Williams was one part of a horrible night for the club that included a last minute defeat at Middlesbrough, Brian McDermott and Tim Dellor sharing a frosty exchange and Dellor going on a rant against Matej Vydra that he's admitted crossed the line.

All three issues seemed to have been put to bed as McDermott has confirmed in his weekly news conference to that Williams & McShane have been disciplined by the club.

What followed was an appearance by McShane himself who explained the spat.

It was hoped that this drew a line under a night to forget for the football club, but it has since been announced that The FA have charged both players with violent conduct. Both players have until 6pm on Friday, April 15 to respond to the charges.

If both are found guilty, it could spell trouble for Reading Football Club, as GetReading reporter Charles Watts explained.

It's not over yet.
