In a joint statement Burnley and Blackburn Rovers are urging fans to respect the police and each other ahead of the East Lancashire Derby at Turf Moor this weekend.
We encourage all supporters attending this game to respect each other and the authorities.
An East Lancashire derby between our two historic clubs is always a special occasion and we hope Sunday’s match will be remembered for the action on the pitch and the positive backing of both sets of supporters.
We acknowledge that there will be some disruption to the normal matchday schedule.
However, this has been done with the safety of all supporters in mind and all fans should be aware that breaches of stadium regulations - including anti-social behaviour - will not be tolerated.
