PRESTON defender Darnell Fisher faces an FA probe after grabbing Sheffield Wednesday striker Callum Paterson’s manhood TWICE.
Video of Fisher’s grope – similar to Vinnie Jones’ infamous “tackle” on Paul Gascoigne – during Preston’s 1-0 Championship triumph went viral.

Fisher now faces an FA probe after his grope on Paterson went viral
Looking to get touch-tight on Paterson on a corner, the 26-year-old copped a feel of the Scotsman’s private parts.
Former Cardiff forward Paterson looked incredibly confused as to what happened and looked to see if anyone had witnessed the grope.
The grab was reminiscent of Vinnie Jones’ infamous clench of Paul Gascoigne’s manhood during Newcastle’s clash with Wimbledon in 1988.
Owls boss Tony Pulis said: “I haven’t seen it but I’m sure, with everybody on social media, he’ll be up in flames if he’s done that.”
The incident comes after England rugby star Joe Marler was handed a ten week ban for touching Alun Wyn Jones’ penis during the Six Nations earlier this year.
North End goal scorer Tom Barkhuizen joked about the act when asked about what happened.
He replied: “Darnell is a good ball player.”
However, fans fumed on social media citing the severity of Fisher’s actions.

One said: “This type of behaviour shouldn’t be tolerated anywhere. Not down the pub, in the street or on a televised spots game.
“Action should be taken, unfortunately, I feel the incident will be laughed off as ‘footballers banter’. Shame.”
Another added: “Anywhere else in the country, it is sexual assault.”
