Charlton say they will not take action against any of their players for their role in a tunnel incident at Carrow Road last Saturday.

Referee Steve Tanner has included his version of events in his report to the FA after players from both sides clashed at half-time of the 2-2 draw.

City had pulled a goal back just before the break, but were angry after an incident involving Charlton skipper Nicky Bailey, who appeared to kick out at City striker Grant Holt.

Referee Tanner took no action, much to the annoyance of City boss Paul Lambert.

Addicks manager Phil Parkinson has played down the incident.

“It was something of nothing and hopefully it will blow over,” he said.

“I haven't felt the need to talk to any of my players about it.”

The FA confirmed this week they were investigating the events before deciding whether or not to take any further action.
