The FA are to look into Darnell Fisher grabbing the private parts of Sheffield Wednesday's Callum Paterson on two occasions yesterday.

The Preston North End defender got too tight when marking the Scotland man on a corner in the second half and videos circulated of him copping a feel of his genitals in scenes similar to the infamous Paul Gascoigne and Vinnie Jones incident years ago.

Paterson didn't make much of a fuss over it but did have a couple of glances at referee David Webb, who did not take any action.

However, it's been confirmed that the FA will look at Fisher's antics and a full investigation of his conduct could be launched, as per Sky Sports.

Fisher has done similar before, with one image showing him grabbing the backside of Cardiff's Aron Gunnarsson in the past.

Preston won 1-0 against 10-man Wednesday through a first-half strike from Tom Barkhuizen to inflict defeat in Tony Pulis' first game in charge.

Pulis said he didn't see the incident involving Fisher and Paterson but correctly predicted the social media aftermath that would follow.

"You're the first one who's said that to me... I haven't seen it, but if that's the case then that's the case," Pulis told The Star.

"I'm sure with everybody on social media and all the places that people look now, he'll be up in flames now if he's done that."

Meanwhile, goalscorer Barkhuizen came up with a gem of a line post-match after he was asked about what happened at the corner.

His hilarious line was: "Darnell is a good ball player."

A string of similar incidents in rugby have seen bans enforced. In the Super League, St Helens' Tommy Makinson was suspended for five matches in August after he put his hands on the testicles of Castleford's Liam Watts.
