The FA's action comes in relation to an incident at half-time during Sunday's Premier League match at the DW Stadium.

Carver appeared incensed at Wigan forward Callum McManaman following his challenge on Massadio Haidara and Barrow also became embroiled in the incident.

Haidara, was carried off with a knee injury and is still waiting to discover the full extent of the damage.

The fall-out from the incident has led to a war of words between the two clubs, while McManaman has avoided any retrospective action from the FA because at least one match official saw the incident.

Both men have until 4pm on Friday March 22 to respond to the FA charge.
