There was some controversy in the Championship on Wednesday night, with an alleged bite incident taking place during Stoke’s 2-1 win over Derby.

With all eyes focused on the incredible 5-5 draw between Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest, some may have missed the incident between both Stoke’s Joe Allen and Derby’s Bradley Johnson.

Peter Etebo’s red card sparked players from both sides to clash, with Allen and Johnson both getting into it. During their confrontation, it appeared that Johnson bit the Welsh international, but Allen has since revealed that was not the case.

“People asked me at half-time what had happened and suggested I’d been bitten, but to clear it all up, that didn’t happen,” he said.

“He might have caught a bit of my shirt, but I think we can lay that one to rest.”

Stoke now sit 12th in the Championship after losing just one of their last 10 games in the league, while Johnson’s Derby are on the cusp of the playoffs in 7th.
