Fulham fined £20,000 by FA after admitting misconduct charge

Fulham have been fined £20,000 by the Football Association after admitting a charge of misconduct.

The charge was brought after Fulham's recent Championship home defeat to Leeds, when players argued with the referee after defender Kostas Stafylidis was sent off early in the second half for two bookings in the space of a minute.

Fulham were given until March 25 to respond.

A statement on the governing body's website read: "Fulham have been fined £20,000 after the club admitted an FA charge of failing to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.

"The charge related to an incident in or around the 51st minute of the game against Leeds United on 18 March 2015."
