The clubs could face potential fines and have until Friday to respond to the alleged incident in the closing stages of the game, which Sam Ricketts' Shrewsbury edged 1-0 through Dave Edwards' late goal.

The incident is believed to have taken place down Town's left flank, in front of blocks 18 and 19, where several players were involved in a skirmish. It is in breach of the FA's rule E20.

Town and Bristol Rovers were fined £3,500 in December for failing to control their players in an incident early on in the dramatic 4-3 Montgomery Waters Meadow defeat against the Gas.
