Shocking Footage Shows Leicester City Fan Run Onto The Pitch And Attack Nottingham Forest Players

There were shocking scenes at the City Ground this evening as a Leicester City fan ran onto the pitch and attacked Nottingham Forest players.

After knocking out 14-time winners Arsenal in the third round, Forest produced another FA Cup shock when they trounced East Midlands rivals Leicester City 4-1.

Philip Zinckernagel, Brennan Johnson, Joe Worrall and Djed Spence were all on target in the victory over the holders.

But during the goal celebrations for one Worrall's goal to make it 3-0, a fan from the away ended up getting on to the field of play and threw punches at the home players.


In appalling footage posted on social media, a man in black can be seen running over to a group of Forest players, who were understandably furious.

He then swung for a number of them, before the stewards arrived on the scene to pin him down.

The individual had an item of clothing ripped off by a Forest player and was chucked onto the floor by security.

The game was shown live on BBC and the disgraceful conduct from the fan will almost definitely result in a lifetime ban from attending football matches.

Meanwhile, the club have already confirmed the supporter has been arrested and is currently in police custody.

Prior to the game, there were some unsavoury scenes as a group of Leicester fans attacked a pub with Forest fans in by hurling tables and chairs at the windows.


A number of Foxes fans were denied entry to another pub, Canal House Bar, after setting off a smoke bomb.

Forest will play Huddersfield in the next round after another impressive cup victory.
