The FA charge Watford following penalty appeal during the game with Ipswich Town
The FA have charged Watford for “failing to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour” during Saturday’s match against Ipswich Town.
The FA statement does not explain in detail what the charge relates to but it does add the incident occurred in or around the 71st minute, which was when the penalty was awarded.
Video footage shows the Hornets players reacting angrily to Graham Scott’s decision to award the penalty. Joel Ekstrand can be seen shouting in the referee’s face and Gabriele Angella appeared to place his hands on the official.
The FA statement read: “Watford have been charged for failing to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour. “It follows an incident which occurred in or around the 71st minute of their game at Ipswich Town on 21 December 2013.
“The club has until 6pm on 30 December 2013 to respond to the charge.”
