Five players red-carded in dressing room

8:35 am on 29 March 2012

An English football referee has red-carded five players in the dressing rooms after a post-match brawl.

The incident followed an English League Two - or fourth tier - game between Bradford City and promotion-chasing Crawley Town.

Bradford's manager Phil Parkinson, who had three players shown red cards after their 2-1 home defeat, said he'd never seen a situation like it, as the ref went into the dressing room, pulled players aside and sent them off.
