OXFORD UNITED will be taking not further action over the scenes that marred Sunderland’s Good Friday win at the Stadium of Light – and have withdrawn their threat to get the police involved in the clashes that took place in the tunnel at both half-time and full-time.

However, it still remains to be seen whether the Football Association will decide to launch their own investigation into the incidents that Oxford boss Karl Robinson alleges resulted in his goalkeeper, Jack Stevens, being head-butted by a member of Sunderland’s coaching staff.

Immediately after Friday’s game, Robinson was threatening to call the police to investigate what he alleged was an attack on Stevens.

At the time, he said: “My goalkeeper, he was head-butted at half-time. There was a massive brawl in there. It’s not just allegations, we have asked the police to come.

“Their players have seen it, our players have seen it. My player certainly felt it. But for some unknown reason there is no footage. Ironic here, isn't it? This club has had more cameras for the last two years than any other club in football, yet there’s no cameras down in the tunnel at half-time.”

However, Northumbria Police did not attend the Stadium of Light, and sources close to the Oxford hierarchy have confirmed that the club are now keen to draw a line under the matter and move on.

Sunderland, who head to automatic-promotion rivals Peterborough United tomorrow, are also keen to put Friday’s incidents to bed, with Lee Johnson claiming on Friday that there was fault on both sides, and suggesting he could level charges against some of Oxford’s staff if the Us decided to go down that route.

That might not be the end of the matter, however, as the FA will be aware of Friday’s post-match comments and could decide to launch their own disciplinary investigation into what went on.
