The Gazette understands that Stendel was knocked to the ground in the tunnel but neither club have confirmed how or if the incident occurred.

Woodrow Tweeted: "Firstly @ftfc (Fleetwood Town) to have a manager that can physically assault another manager in the tunnel is disgusting, causing our manager to have blood pouring from his face!

"People like you don’t deserve a place in the game of football you are foul.

"Secondly fantastic win today."

The post match interviews from both sides were cancelled.
