Norwich and Cardiff have been charged with "failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion" following the incidents at the end of last weekend's goalless draw at Carrow Road, the Football Association confirmed.

A scuffle ensued at the end of the game after Norwich midfielder Leroy Fer put the ball in the net when Cardiff expected he would return the ball to them after an injury.

"Both Norwich City and Cardiff City have been charged by the FA for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion. It follows an incident which occurred in or around the 94th minute of their fixture on Saturday October 26, 2013," the statement said.

"Both clubs have until 6pm on 4 November 2013 to respond to the charge."
