Footage of the Championship game saw Fisher make a grab at the genital area of Wednesday's Calum Paterson while marking him at a corner.

The clip was posted on Twitter by a Wednesday supporter watching the game on iFollow and has gone viral over the last few hours.

Asked about the incident after the game, Owls manager Tony Pulis said he hadn't seen the incident.

Whether it will lead to Fisher facing any sort of action from the FA, remains to be seen.

Fisher played the full 90 minutes of the game which saw North End win a home league game for the first time this season.

He operated at right-back in the first half before moving into a three-man back line in the second half as PNE boss Alex Neil switched system.
