Coach slams teammates over 'playground' tiff

PRESTON North End teammates Jermaine Beckford and Eoin Doyle could face sanctions from the English FA after both were sent off for fighting with each other.

North End manager Simon Grayson said the pair would also be likely hit by some sort of punishment from the club after the incident in the 2-1 Championship defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

"You expect it in the playground between four or five-year-olds, not from two professionals who've been in the game a long time,” the Preston boss told BBC Lancashire.

"For something like that to happen is embarrassing. It's a joke, it's a disgrace.”
