Hull City have submitted their full version of events to the FA in the Cesc Fabregas 'spitting' row.

Brown wants truth to come out

Hull City have submitted their full version of events to the Football Association following allegations of spitting by Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas. The Gunners skipper was accused of spitting at Tigers assistant manager Brian Horton in the aftermath of Hull's 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final at Emirates Stadium. Hull boss Phil Brown maintains he saw Fabregas spit towards Horton in the tunnel at the end of the match. Fabregas revealed over the weekend he felt the matter was finished, while Hull chairman Paul Duffen hoped for an amicable conclusion to the incident. Hull say statements from Brown, Horton and fitness conditioner Sean Rush have now been sent to the FA. "My evidence has gone in, Brian Horton's evidence has gone in and Sean Rush's evidence has as well. That is all that has been necessary as regards to us up to now," Brown told the Hull Daily Mail."There is an independent solicitor representing us and hopefully there will be no bias towards any one club." Fabregas strenuously denies the allegations, but Brown added: "We really just want the truth to come out. "If the truth comes out, then we have got nothing to worry about." Once the FA receive any relevant documentation, the governing body can then consider whether the alleged incident merits any further investigation.
