Another fan of the Premier League club complained about another Leeds fan's behaviour, saying, "He was sitting right behind us. We accept that there is rivalry between the two clubs but to go to that extent, he was very abusive.

"There were so many parents there with young kids under 10, we were all shaking our heads.

"One friend turned around and told him to zip it and he went off his face, I was afraid for myself as well that it was going to come down to blows. He said 'if you don't like it you can p**s off'."

There was an attempted pitch invasion by one fan during the match but he was stopped before making it onto the pitch, with eagle eyed viewers noticing one steward 'decking' it during the chase.
