KARL Robinson will attend an FA hearing today as the fallout from Oxford United’s Good Friday clash with Sunderland rumbles on.

The U’s head coach is set to state his case over Zoom after the governing body handed him a second charge in relation to the fixture at the Stadium of Light.

Players and staff clashed in the tunnel at the break and in the aftermath of United’s 3-1 defeat, with Robinson claiming goalkeeper Jack Stevens was headbutted during the interval.

The FA last week charged the U’s boss and Sunderland assistant manager Jamie McAllister with alleged ‘improper and/or violent conduct’ in the tunnel area at full-time and half-time respectively.

Robinson has already received a £1,000 fine and one-match touchline ban, served at Crewe Alexandra on April 10, for his red card in the 81st minute of the fixture.

The United manager revealed last week he had asked for a personal hearing and he is determined to say his piece.

He said: “I don’t really care what the FA do.

“When you win cases with the FA they ask you not to speak about it, when you lose they’re very quick to judge you.

“I was the one stopping what went on at half-time at Sunderland, but they don’t want to talk about the good things you do.”

The U’s boss was dismissed by referee Trevor Kettle for his reaction to Sunderland’s 81st-minute second goal, when the hosts played on with Cameron Brannagan down on the ground.

Both clubs have also been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20 for allegedly failing to ensure that their ‘players and/or club officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour in or around the tunnel at half-time and full-time’.

Sunderland manager Lee Johnson has since suggested the Black Cats will not fight some of the allegations levelled at them.

“(We’ll accept) some of them,” he told the Sunderland Echo.

“I think there’s definitely mitigating circumstances within those.

“We will put our case over and the guys at the football club have been fantastic in how they’ve gone through it really thoroughly.”

He added: “It was a slight overreaction to a particular incident but the players were outstanding in all of it so I’d be disappointed if anything come of it as a club.”
