A section of the 1,300-strong following from London took exception to seeing their side concede a late goal, which gave the Millers a vital 2-1 win at the foot of the Sky Bet Championship table, and attempted to invade home areas of the New York Stadium.

Riot police were forced to intervene before trouble continued outside the ground after full-time where a number of stewards and police officers suffered minor injuries.

After collecting footage from CCTV cameras inside the ground, the police will now trawl through it in order to identify those involved.

Rotherham condemned the "unprecedented level of violent behaviour" of the Millwall fans on Monday while the Lions have vowed to ban anyone found guilty.

A club statement by the Lions read: "Millwall Football Club will do everything possible to assist Rotherham United FC and South Yorkshire Police investigating the disorder that occurred during Saturday's match at the New York Stadium.

"The club's position remains clear - anyone associated with the club found guilty of violent behaviour will be banned from Millwall matches, in addition to any punishment they receive from the authorities."

Hollywood star Crowe prompted speculation he may be ready to make a bid for Leeds recently, when he asked his 1.6million Twitter followers whether he should buy the club.

The 50-year-old has been a lifelong fan of the Whites, and Leeds Fans LLP said in a statement:

Russell is back in the UK next month and we will try to get a face to face to see if we can get something more concrete from him.

– Leeds Fans LLP

Leeds LLP made contact with Crowe, who asked the group to watch a six-episode show of the work he has done as co-owner of NRL side South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Were Crowe, the man who played Maximus in Gladiator, to actively pursue involvement with an investment, he could use the LLP group as a vehicle.

LLP is limited liability partnership which will invite Leeds supporters to become partners by buying stakes worth £100. A maximum of 100,000 stakes are to be made available with fans able to buy up to 1,000, with each stake worth one vote.

Robbie Brady will also be out after picking up a calf injury in training that is likely to keep him out for some time.

Long-term absentee Mohamed Diame (knee) remains missing from the Tigers squad along with James Chester (shoulder), Liam Rosenior (hamstring) and Robert Snodgrass (knee).

Adam Johnson will not be included in the Sunderland squad after being suspended by the club following his arrest on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under 16.

But defender Wes Brown will be available after his red card at Manchester United on Saturday was rescinded on appeal, and he could be joined in the squad by defender Billy Jones (ankle) and midfielders Jack Rodwell (groin) and Ricky Alvarez (knock) following their recoveries from injury.

However, winger Will Buckley (knee) remains a doubt, while fellow midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini (ankle) will miss the rest of the season.

Hull squad: McGregor, Harper, Davies, Dawson, McShane, Robertson, Bruce, Elmohamady, Livermore, Meyler, Quinn, Huddlestone, Jelavic, Hernandez, Aluko, Ramirez, N'Doye.

Sunderland squad: Pantilimon, Mannone, Reveillere, Van Aanholt, Jones, O'Shea, Brown, Vergini, Coates, Cattermole, Bridcutt, Rodwell, Gomez, Larsson, Alvarez, Agnew, Honeyman, Fletcher, Defoe, Wickham, Graham.
