Two footballers have been charged over the same incident in a Merseyside bar which saw Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard accused of assault.

Accrington Stanley's goalkeeper Ian Dunbavin and midfielder Robert Grant have both been charged with affray.

Gerrard was charged over the attack in the Lounge Inn in Southport in the early hours of December the 29th.

The England player is on bail and due to reappear in court next month.

Gerrard said he intended to plead not guilty to the charge when he came before magistrates last month.
