“But for some unknown reason there wasn’t one in the tunnel at half time for the first time in three years.

“Their players seen it, but what happened I will keep that quiet.

“Our goalkeeper will make a charge and at the end of the game it shows how severe it was because the fourth official asked the person who it was to leave early to get out the way.

“It shows you again the conduct of what they do when they score the winner right in front of our bench.

“I’m furious and there’s so many things I could say but we have to keep our dignity at times an plead the fifth.”

He added: “My goalkeeper, he was headbutted at half-time, and there was a massive brawl in there. I think it was just handbags.”

Sunderland manager Lee Johnson said: “It was a bit of a Royal Rumble at half time and full time and as a football club it’s certainly something we can’t encourage.

“I didn’t see an awful lot of it. I was in the toilet.

“But we’ve got to be a class act on and off the pitch.

“There were a lot of Oxford coaches in there too so they didn’t come out of it smelling of roses and I’d be careful what they are saying.”
