Nervous wait for Newcastle pair

The chances of Newcastle pair Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer being charged over their on-field brawl have moved a step closer.

Northumbria Police quizzed the pair on Tuesday after complaints from fans both at the game and watching on television.

And a file is now being sent to the Crown Prosecution Service to decide if they will face criminal charges.

The pair were sent off after clashing during Newcastle's 3-0 defeat by Aston Villa on Saturday, 2 April.

Bowyer was hit with a club record fine of six weeks' wages - understood to be about 200,000 - and a final written warning after the incident during the Premiership game.

The pair were also banned by the Football Association after their dismissals.

Dyer was handed a three-game ban with Bowyer getting a four-match ban as he had already been sent off this season.

On Tuesday, Bowyer admitted an FA charge of violent conduct and will be dealt with by a disciplinary committee at a personal hearing on Friday.
