Monday 03 February 2014
Norwich and Newcastle have until Wednesday afternoon to respond to a Football Association charge of failing to control their players in last week's ill-tempered goalless draw at Carrow Road.
Newcastle striker Loic Remy and Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson were each shown a red card by referee Chris Foy after pushing each other and then squaring up head-to-head on the touchline.
A statement from the FA read: "Both Norwich City and Newcastle United have been charged by the FA for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.
"The charge relates to an incident in or around the 82nd minute of their match on Tuesday, January 28, 2014.
"The clubs have until 6pm on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 to respond to the charge."
