DJ Campbell: Challenge on Matt Gilks sparked a melee that has brought FA charges

Players from both clubs were involved in a melee late on in Saturday's 2-2 draw, sparked by DJ Campbell's tackle on Seasiders goalkeeper Matt Gilks.

Campbell, formerly of the Seasiders, was sent off for his reaction, along with Blackpool's on-loan Liverpool defender Jack Robinson.

A statement on Blackburn's official website confirmed: "Both Blackburn Rovers and Blackpool have been charged by The FA for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion."

The Lancashire clubs have until 6pm on 4 November 4 to respond to their charges.
