​Birmingham and Aston Villa fined £5,000

Birmingham City and Aston Villa have each been fined £5,000 by the Football Association for failing to control players in their Second City derby.

The Championship clubs were charged over a melee in the fifth minute after a foul on Villa captain Jack Grealish by Blues midfielder Maikel Kieftenbeld.

Villa won the game on 10 March 1-0, with Grealish scoring the only goal.

Both clubs accepted the charge.
