Andrew Davies, Luke Oliver and Jon McLaughlin of Bradford were sent off by referee Ian Williamson, who dished out the same treatment to Crawley pair Kyle McFadzean and substitute Claude Davis.

The tempestuous League Two encounter finished 2-1 to Crawley, but the main talking point was the fight after the whistle.

Bradford boss Phil Parkinson said: "The referee seems very clear in his mind what went on and that is the reason he took the action he did in the dressing rooms.

"I can't believe this has happened. I have never been in a situation before where a ref has come into the dressing room, pulled players on one side and sent them off. He wouldn't allow me in there!"

Crawley manager Steve Evans added: "I only saw the Bradford player Andrew Davies run towards my players and throw a punch. I think it was handbags, with a lot of pushing and shoving, but it was disappointing to see.

"The fourth official confirmed to me that the Bradford boy Davies ran and punched somebody. Then there was a mass of bodies who had initially come together to shake hands."
