Grim scenes in the Championship last night, where Sheffield Wednesday ‘keeper Chris Kirkland was attacked in his goalmouth when a grunting Leeds fan escaped from his enclosure following Michael Tonge’s 77th-minute equaliser and shoved the former Liverpool stopper to the floor…
South Yorkshire Police also issued a statement after the game saying they are now investigating incidents “where it is believed seats and bottles were thrown” inside Hillsborough.
Owls manager Dave Jones, who had ‘those’ chants sung at him all night, had strong words for the Leeds fans after the game, telling BBC Sport:
“They are vile animals. You talk about racism [but] the chanting, that’s a form of racism. They should be banned from every away ground if they’re going to behave like that.
