South Yorkshire Police have also launched an investigation following the arrest of three people on suspicion of public order offences and one for assault, the PA news agency understands.

A club spokesperson said: "Barnsley Football Club and Leeds United Football Club are greatly disappointed by reports of violence at yesterday's game and will be working together to assess the matter."

Leeds fans clashed with stewards in the away end towards the end of their side's 2-0 win and, in a separate incident, fighting also broke out in the east stand.
