West Ham United were fined £115,000 and ordered to pay £5,000 costs by the FA for failing to control their fans in the Carling Cup clash with Millwall in August.

The club are expected to appeal against the stinging punishment, set down because they were found guilty earlier this week of failing to ensure supporters refrained from violent, threatening, obscene and provocative behaviour, as well as failing to stop fans from invading the pitch.

Millwall were cleared of all charges.
