London - Newcastle assistant manager John Carver and his Wigan counterpart Graham Barrow have been fined for their part in a touchline brawl that followed Callum McManaman's horror challenge on Massadio Haidara.

Carver has received an undisclosed financial penalty and been warned as to his future conduct, while Barrow has been ordered to pay £1 000 and will serve a one-match touchline ban.

The pair were charged with misconduct by the English Football Association in the wake of Wigan's controversial 2-1 home win over Newcastle on March 17.

Tempers flared after Newcastle defender Haidara had been caught by Wigan forward McManaman with a knee-high tackle which saw the Frenchman carried from the pitch on a stretcher.

Referee Mark Halsey took no action against McManaman, prompting Carver into a angry rant on the touchline which in turn sparked a brawl involving players and coaching staff from both teams.

"Newcastle United assistant manager John Carver has been fined and warned as to his future conduct as a result of the charge brought against him by the Football Association following United's match at Wigan Athletic on 17 March 2013," a statement from the club announced on Thursday.

Barrow's punishment was confirmed in a Wigan statement which said: "First team coach GB has been fined £1 000 and given a one match touchline suspension with immediate effect after accepting an FA charge of misconduct following an incident at half-time in the match against Newcastle United at the DW Stadium on March 17."
