Smith In Tunnel Skirmish

Last updated : 05 January 2004 By Kevin Markey

Smith was booked for a foul on Ashley Cole and then clattered into Edu in the first-half of the 4-1 defeat.

Edu approached referee Rob Styles as the players moved down the tunnel, prompting a response from Smith.

Stewards moved in as Smith and Edu clashed.

It is the latest controversy to involve Smith, with Arsenal players furious that his challenge on Edu went unpunished.
