Newcastle United and Sunderland have both accepted charges of misconduct from the Football Association.

Newcastle United and Sunderland have both accepted charges of misconduct from the Football Association.

The clubs were charged following last week’s Tyne-Wear derby at Sports Direct Arena with a ‘failure to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.’

The Black Cats said that they had accepted the charge but will now have a personal hearing to sort out the issue.

"Sunderland AFC has accepted a charge of misconduct from the Football Association following an alleged breach of FA Rule E20 (a) during last weekend's Barclays Premier League fixture at Newcastle United, " read a statement on Sunderland's official website.

"The club has requested a personal hearing to discuss this incident further."
