Bantams not appealing FA fine
Bradford will not be appealing against their £9,000 fine imposed by the Football Association for failing to control their players.
The Bantams were also warned as to their future conduct by an FA disciplinary panel following the post-match fight at the end of the home defeat to Crawley last month when referee Iain Williamson sent off a total of five players in the dressing rooms. Bradford head of operations David Baldwin said: "We will accept the punishment given to us by the Football Association and look to move on. The club is now keen to concentrate all their efforts on ensuring that we are able to confirm our League Two status for next season." Crawley have been fined £8,000 for their part in the incident as it was their second offence of this nature in the past 12 months. Crawley defender Pablo Mills has been fined £1,000 and banned for three matches after being found guilty of violent conduct. Claude Davis was also sent off and a third Crawley player, Kyle McFadzean, was later banned for violent conduct on the basis of video evidence. Bradford goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin and defender Luke Oliver - both sent off for their part in the melee - have been fined the maximum two weeks' wages, while City are still in discussions with Andrew Davies' parent club Stoke over the exact nature of his punishment following his dismissal.
