Joey Barton today tweeted: “With regards to the alleged incident on Saturday following our game against Barnsley, I emphatically deny all the allegations made. Given this matter has not been formally closed, it would be inappropriate for me to make any further comment.”

Stendel is understood to have damaged two teeth after knocking his head into a metal support at the side of the tunnel.
