South Yorkshire Police are to conduct an investigation following disorder at the Rotherham United v Millwall FC game at the New York Stadium in Rotherham.
After Rotherham United scored in the 85th minute, a number of supporters attempted to gain access to supporters in other parts of the ground. Several stewards were attacked, leaving two with minor injuries, and additional police officers were deployed to restore order. As fans left the ground, further disorder occurred.
A number of police officers also received minor injuries.No arrests were made. But Chief Superintendent Jason Harwin said
“Again we see a minority of individuals spoil the event for many others. They aren't a true representation of genuine football supporters and have no place in football. Such action can not be tolerated. I thank the bravery and courage of stewards and police officers in tackling such criminal acts and we will now review evidence to identify and bring to justice those that are responsible for such criminal acts.”
