“Paul McShane and Danny Williams have both been charged by The FA following an on-field incident which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video,” a statement read.

“It is alleged the two Reading players’ behaviour in or around the 83rd minute of the game against Middlesbrough on 12 April, 2016 constituted violent conduct.

“The matter was referred to a panel of three former elite referees who each reviewed the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they considered it a sending-off offence. For an FA charge to follow the decision by the panel must be unanimous. Both players have until 6pm on 15 April 2016 to respond to their charge.”
