Bournemouth stars Junior Stanislas and Sam Surridge were involved in a fight on the pitch which needed to be broken up by their team-mates.

Last seasons’ Premier League side managed to see off Wycombe Wanderers in a 1-0 win to go top of the Championship.

But the England U21’s decision to take a shot on goal in stoppage brought a furious reaction from former West Ham man Stanislas, who was in space at the edge of the penalty box.

And the 31-year-old, who scored the only goal of the game after 68 minutes, made his feelings of anger clear.

Surridge had just seen his shot from a tight angle fizz across the goal-line and out for a goal kick, giving Wycombe one more chance to attack for an equaliser.

It saw the Englishman walk up to the winger while shouting at him in front of the Cherries fans.

As the 23-year-old tries to dismiss Stanislas’ comments, the No.19 shoves his own team-mate before Jefferson Lerma comes between them.

The referee blows his whistle furiously to separate the pair, who soon walk away for the end of the game.

This footage was soon shared on Twitter, where fans were left baffled at the on-pitch scrap between the pair.

“What the hell were they playing at,” one viewer said.

Another commented: “There’s definitely something more to it than just that!”

While a third compared it to one of the most infamous fallouts between team-mates, with: “Not quite the level of [Lee] Bowyer vs [Kieron] Dyer.

The Newcastle players fought with each other in 2005 during a 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa, leading to both getting sent off.

While fans were left in shock, manager Jason Tindall was not concerned about the show of anger.

He said after the game: “It was a little bit [of a sour end], but it shows the passion of the squad, and I love that. It’s all forgotten, and they’re fine in the dressing room.”

While midfielder Lewis Cook told the Bournemouth Echo : “I didn’t see much of it. I was quite far away but they are two lads that both want to score goals and do well for the club.
