JASON Tindall admitted “you don’t want to see” the brief spat between Junior Stanislas and Sam Surridge during the latter stages against Wycombe but added: “There’s no hard feelings between the two of them.”

The pair were involved in an altercation with each other late on against the Chairboys at Vitality Stadium, a game in which Stanislas scored the winner to earn the hosts a 1-0 success.

After Surridge had charged forward late on and saw his strike at goal deflect wide, he and Stanislas ended up shoving one another as tempers flared between the two.

They were eventually split up by team-mate Jefferson Lerma, with referee Matthew Donohue looking to calm things down.

Asked for his take on the incident, Tindall said: “For me it just goes to show the passion of the team and how much they want to win – how much each game means to them.

“You don’t want to see what happened but it’s no different to what happens up and down the country on the training ground from time-to-time.

“There’s no hard feelings between the two of them. They were just frustrated at the time and passion probably got the better of both of them.

“But they are in the changing room now, all fine, all laughing, all joking, still united and it’s all forgotten.”

Asked whether the incident did not look good on the club, Tindall told the Daily Echo: “You don’t want to see it.

“There is no jazzing it up to make it look any better but for me that’s just passion from the two players – how much winning the game meant to them.

“That’s all it was. I put it down to great passion, I want my players to play with passion every time they put on the red and black shirt.

“I want them to show everybody how much it means to them. You don’t want them to take it out on each other but these things happen up and down the country, week in week out.

“I have spoken to the them in the changing room just now and they are fine.

“How important each decision is on the pitch and what that means to them – I think probably got the better of the situation.

“But they are fine, there is no problem. They are really good team-mates. We have got a really tight group and that’s always been the case.

“I am sure they will be laughing and joking about it again tomorrow.”
