It appeared going into the final minutes that Rowett was upset that Wednesday’s Izzy Brown wasn’t sent off for a late tackle, and speaking to the media afterwards, the Millwall boss commented on the situation, saying, “Windass was being a bit chippy, which I felt showed a lack of respect towards a manager.”

Meanwhile, Wednesday’s Dominic Iorfa admitted that he wasn’t sure what happened, telling the media, “I’ve no idea… It was between their manager and a few of our players, but I don’t know what was said. I wish I could tell you, I was down the other end of the pitch and I just saw people splitting up Paterson, Windass and their manager. But I don’t know what happened.”

Wednesday boss, Garry Monk, almost admitted that he wasn’t sure what happened in the incident.
