The Football Association is likely to investigate after a brawl marred the end of high-flying Wycombe's 1-0 League Two win at Macclesfield on Saturday.The fracas took place in injury time at Moss Rose after Macc's Ricky Sappleton appeared to kick out at Stuart Lewis, with several players then wading in. [LNB]Sappleton was dismissed, along with fellow Macc striker Emile Sinclair and Wycombe defender David Winfield. [LNB]The match was referee James Adcock's debut in a Football League contest. [LNB]Wycombe boss Gary Waddock, who saw his side move to within six points of leaders Chesterfield, said he will look at a video of the incident before passing judgement. [LNB]"I didn't see much because there were too many bodies and it was on the other side of the pitch," Waddock commented. "I will have a look at the DVD and will then be able to make a better judgement. [LNB]"I have not really spoken to Dave [Winfield]. I think everything needs to calm down and we will look at it again in the cold light of day when it is a lot calmer." [LNB]Macclesfield manager Gary Simpson admitted that the referee could have sent anyone off in the dramatic conclusion. [LNB]"Well, from what I've been told, Ricky has gone in and caught the lad," added Simpson, whose team lies 21st in the table. [LNB]"Ricky has gone over to pick him up and they've all waded in. So the referee has picked out three to send off. But to be honest the rest of the game was a decent spectacle." [LNB] Watch the brawl on The Football League Show, available on the BBC's iPlayer
