The incident occurred around the 11th minute of the 2-2 draw, with Wotton banished from the Pilgrims’ dugout for his part.

The duo have since pleaded guilty to improper language and/or behaviour and are now each fined £500.

The penalty, which they accepted, is the standard punishment for such an offence.
