Blackburn Rovers and Burnley FC have appealed to fans to make Saturday's Championship derby memorable for the football. They say that anti social behaviour will be dealt with.
“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 Saturday’s Championship game will be remembered for the action on the pitch and the positive backing of both sets of supporters....all fans should be aware that breaches of stadium regulations - including anti-social behaviour - will not be tolerated. Burnley and Blackburn Rovers also have a zero tolerance for discrimination of any sort, on the pitch or in the stands."
