Police condemn Preston pitch invasion as disgraceful

The behaviour of those involved in the disorder at last night’s game was completely unacceptable – there was a significant minority of determined people from both sides who throughout the day, before, during and after the game, were intent on causing problems.

There will be a thorough investigation over the coming days and weeks and I want to be very clear that those involved in the disorder can expect a visit from the police and to be prosecuted.

– Superintendent Richard Morgan

The behaviour of those involved in the disorder and the behaviour of some people towards officers and stewards was absolutely disgraceful.

This was a very difficult situation which presented significant challenges for both the club and for ourselves and we were able to bring the situation under control quickly.

The disorder last night was completely unacceptable and we will be making significant efforts to locate and prosecute those involved.

– Chief Inspector Nick Emmett, Match Commander
