Whybrow, from west London, and Parsons, from Amersham, Buckinghamshire, are accused of the offence during a Europa League game against FC Sheriff on November 7.

Ditchman, from Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, allegedly used bad language in the Barclays Premier League game with West Ham on October 6.

All three are accused of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress.
