Lancashire Police have released CCTV images of six men who they would like to speak to following disorder before the Burnley v Southampton match last month.

The match took place on Saturday, December 13, and saw Burnley take on Southampton at Turf Moor.

Shortly before the match, a small group of people thought to be Burnley supporters entered the grounds and made their way to another entrance where they confronted rival supporters and engaged in violent disorder.

A post-match investigation was launched and officers have identified a number of people they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.

Unfortunately a small number of fans took it upon themselves to act violently towards others and cause disruption before the game.

"We cannot afford to let the actions of a minority spoil games like these for the true fans and to behave like this towards fellow football supporters is wholly unacceptable."

– Detective Inspector Martin Melvin, Lancashire Police

Anyone with information should contact Lancashire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Burnley boss Dyche on Danny Ings ahead of Spurs cup clash

The Clarets head to White Hart Lane tonight to take on Tottenham in their FA Cup replay.

Some older supporters will know that's a repeat of the 1962 final.

That went the way of Spurs but Burnley fans are pinning their hopes on Danny Ings to steer them into round four.

Sean Dyche says Danny is still his own biggest critic:

He does question himself a lot and his thirst to improve is for all to see."

Burnley looking to bounce back against Everton

Burnley boss Sean Dyche insists his side have the character to bounce back from their growing streak of disappointments and beat the odds by securing Barclays Premier League survival.

The Clarets go in search of their first top-flight win at their ninth attempt against Everton at Turf Moor on Sunday.

A second-half lapse cost his men dear against West Ham last week but Dyche is adamant there is still the desire within his camp to turn things round.

We believe this group is honest enough to keep learning and not be broken by it. You just get dented and you take the knocks and come off the ropes and get ready to take it again.

We hope to use that mentality wisely over the season and the next step is to use it to learn how to win.

– Sean Dyche, Burnley Manager

Despite Everton's inconsistent start to the season and a midweek trip to France in the UEFA Europa League, Dyche is under no illusions about the difficulties of finally claiming a three-point haul on Sunday.
