JOEY Barton is set to appear at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court next week having been charged with causing actual bodily harm following a post-match incident at Oakwell.

Barnsley head coach Daniel Stendel was left with facial injuries and needed emergency dental treatment after his team’s 4-2 success over Barton’s Fleetwood Town on April 13.

Barton has previously denied any wrongdoing in a statement on his club’s website, but South Yorkshire Police charged the former Manchester City and Newcastle United midfielder.

He is due to appear in court on Wednesday.
