Millwall fans branded "s***houses" after attacking Blackburn Rovers following play-offs collapse

Millwall fans branded "s***houses" after attacking Blackburn Rovers following play-offs collapse

Footage emerged of Millwall fans attacking a coach carrying Blackburn Rovers fans after they threw away a 3-1 lead in the Championship.

Millwall fans have been branded "s***houses" after a video circulated showing some supporters attacking a coach carrying Blackburn Rovers fans.

Millwall hosted Blackburn at the Den on a dramatic final day in the Championship and missed out on a play-off spot after a collapse of epic proportions.

Gary Rowett's side were 3-1 up and flying at half-time after a brace from Duncan Watmore and a fine strike from Oliver Burke.

But Millwall completely collapsed in the second half, with goals from Joe Rankin-Costello and Ben Brereton-Diaz (2) completing a remarkable turnaround.

Millwall finished below Blackburn as a result and Sunderland took the final play-off spot after a 3-0 win over Preston North End.

It sparked some unsavoury scenes after the game, with a pocket of home fans filmed attacking the visiting coach.

The video showed a brick being hurled at the coach, resulting in the windows being smashed and panels being damaged.

Fans, including young children, were onboard and had to crouch for safety as missiles were thrown.

Red Rose Travel, a Lancashire-based company, supplied the coaches and hit out at the Millwall fans, who they labelled "s***houses" in a Facebook post.

"You gotta love a good game of football and the passion the fans show,” the post said.

“I mean, take Millwall FC tonight [Monday], probably lost millions tonight by not making it into the playoffs and the Premier League, but it doesn’t matter, they can trash the away fans coaches and risk injury to the families on board.

“Well done you guys. You’ve achieved jack s*** apart from costing an innocent business [money]. For what? f-all. Bunch of s***houses.”

As per the Lancashire Telegraph, two coaches were targeted and the damage meant they were not suitable to drive - leading to other arrangements having to be made for the fans heading back up north.

Lee Collard, director of the business, told the newspaper that a driver was "crying down the phone" and left traumatised by the ordeal.

He said: “One driver was very shaken and was crying down the phone to us. He said he had been attacked and that the supporters were trying to force their way onto the coach through the front door.

“The drivers are traumatised but they have been commended by passengers who said they did a fantastic job.

“There were families, children included, on these coaches.”
