An anonymous fan told the Plymouth Herald: "During the first half of the match Mansfield substitute Adi Yussuf was warming up on the touchline right in front of the disabled zone where I sit with my friend.

"He said something to Plymouth Argyle substitutes Rooney and Purrington before walking over to the piece of disused land between the disabled zone and the Devonport End and took a wee.

"This was right in front of everyone in the disabled section.

"Myself and the lady who works in the refreshments area witnessed it as well as some others and we reported it to the stewards.

"They later took a statement and reported it to the referee."

Brendan Malone, the match referee, noted the incident in his report.

"We have complied with this request and await developments."
