The Football Association and Metropolitan Police are continuing to search for a number of Millwall fans who caused trouble during the League One play-off final.

Barnsley's return to the Championship after their 3-1 win over the Lions on Sunday was overshadowed by trouble during and after the game.

A group of Millwall supporters attempted to break into the Barnsley end at Wembley, forcing a number of supporters to move to stay out of the way as the violence broke out and the club has vowed to hand out lifetime bans to anyone found guilty.

Fifteen arrests were made outside the ground but there have been no arrests with regards to the trouble inside Wembley.

The FA is working with members of both clubs and the Metropolitan Police to identify those who were involved in the disturbances and issued a statement surrounding the issue.

The FA condemns the disorder caused by a small number of fans at the League One play-off final between Barnsley and Millwall at Wembley Stadium.

We will work closely with the clubs, the Football League and the Metropolitan Police to identify those involved and take appropriate action.

We would like to take this opportunity to praise the actions of our stewards and the police, who responded responsibly under provocation.

– The FA
