Fleetwood Town manager Joey Barton has denied assaulting former Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel after their League One clash last season.

Barton, 37, is alleged to have pushed the German manager at Barnsley’s Oakwell Stadium on April 13 this year, leaving him with a damaged tooth.

The former England international appeared at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday to enter a not guilty plea to a single charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

District Judge Joanne Hirst bailed him and sent to the case for trial at Sheffield Crown Court.

Wearing a blue open-neck shirt, a blue jumper, blue trousers and sporting glasses, Barton spoke only to give his name, his date of birth, his address of Fox Bank Close in Widnes, Cheshire, confirm his British nationality and indicate his plea.
