Leeds United and Burnley have been charged by the Football Association following a mass brawl during Saturday's Championship game at Elland Road. Players from both sides squared up to each other after a waist-high lunge from Clarets midfielder Chris McCann towards United winger Max Gradel during the second half. An FA statement read: "The FA has charged Leeds United and Burnley with failing to ensure that their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour. The charge relates to a recent fixture between the two sides at Elland Road on 30 April 2011. Both clubs have until 4pm on 6 May 2011 to respond."
