London - Hull manager Phil Brown was fined and given a warning by the Football Association on Thursday over his angry confrontation with Newcastle's Joe Kinnear.

The rival managers were sent to the stands by referee Phil Dowd during the January 14 game won 1-0 by Hull at Newcastle's St. James' Park. Brown was furious after a first-half tackle by Newcastle defender Fabricio Coloccini on Hull forward Daniel Cousin and the two managers came face to face before Dowd ordered both to sit in the stands.

Brown admitted a charge of improper conduct and the FA fined him 2500 pounds and warned him as to his future conduct. The case against Kinnear, who is recovering from heart surgery, was postponed.

Brown is also involved in another acrimonious incident after Hull's 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Arsenal on Tuesday. The FA has asked both clubs for explanations after Brown accused Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas of spitting at Hull assistant manager Brian Horton.

Fabregas, who was not involved in the game, has denied spitting.
