Footage has emerged of Fleetwood boss Joey Barton being prevented from leaving Oakwell following accusations he assaulted Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel.
The alleged incident happened after Town’s 4-2 defeat at Barnsley in League One.
It is understood Barton and Stendel had to be separated after the full-time whistle but the former Manchester City player reportedly followed his opposite number towards the dressing rooms.
Tykes forward Cauley Woodrow took to Twitter to describe the incident, claiming Stendel had blood pouring from his face afterwards. The post has since been deleted.
