Wigan are to carry out a full investigation into the crowd disturbances which marred the club's dramatic FA Cup victory over Manchester City on Monday.
City striker Sergio Aguero became involved in a physical exchange with a Wigan supporter as thousands of fans spilled onto the field following the final whistle at the DW Stadium.
A number of fans also headed towards the end where the visiting fans were sat to continue their celebrations, sparking further disorder.
Advertising hoardings were ripped out and thrown onto the field along with other objects, while missiles were also thrown from the field into the stand. There were also clashes between fans and police and stewards.
Wigan chief executive Jonathan Jackson said in a statement: "Whilst we appreciate that the vast majority of supporters who ran on to the pitch did so spontaneously to celebrate a famous victory, we were disappointed with the action of a minority of supporters who acted in an inappropriate manner.
"Player and staff safety is of paramount importance and we will conduct a full investigation."
