London: A referee sent off five players in the dressing rooms after a post-match brawl at an English League Two (fourth tier) game between Bradford City and promotion-chasing Crawley Town.

"I can`t believe this has happened," Bradford manager Phil Parkinson, who had three players shown red cards after the 2-1 home defeat on Tuesday night said.

"I have never been in a situation before where a ref has come into the dressing room, pulled players on one side and sent them off. He wouldn`t allow me in there."

Six Crawley players and one from Bradford were booked during the match with Bradford`s Andrew Davies, who was sent off, now set for a five-match ban after being shown red cards twice previously this season.
