A post-match confrontation between Charlton Athletic boss and an AFC Wimbledon employee left the Addicks manager needing to be restrained.

Tom Elliott’s late equaliser before being sent off denied Chartlon victory after Ricky Holmes put Charlton ahead in an ill-tempered London derby.

The 36-year-old was walking down the touchline as the teams left the pitch before ending up in an altercation with a member of the AFC Wimbledon staff.

“He knows what he said to me,” Robinson told the Club website.

“We get stick, it’s part of the game, but when an employee of the other club says something like that, it shows the class of the person,” added Robinson.

“Certain aspects of it were disgusting and shouldn’t be part of any industry.

“In no walk of life should what was said be said.

“It was always going to be hostile with the fans. It’s part and parcel of the game.”

“To be fair, their staff and everyone else in the building has been brilliant since then. Credit to them and I have got a lot of respect for the way they conducted themselves.”

AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Adley admitted his disappointment with the actions of one of his colleagues.

“No matter what tensions there are in the game nobody should take it upon themselves to abuse people and take the law into their own hands. It’s wrong,” he said in an interview for BBC Radio London.

“Hopefully the club will do the right thing and deal with it in the right way.”
