  • Pitch-invading Port Vale supporters appeared to punch Swindon players following their League Two playoff semi-final victory on Thursday night.

    Darrell Clarke’s men booked their place in the Wembley final by edging a nervy penalty shootout at Vale Park, after James Wilson’s opener for the hosts sent the tie to extra-time and then spot-kicks following Swindon’s 2-1 win in the first leg.

    It was Vale who came out on top from 12 码, with goalkeeper Aidan Stone proving the hero and setting up a date of destiny with Mansfield next Sunday.

    然而, what should have been a night to savour for the club ended in disgrace when home fans invaded the pitch to celebrate their victory and then appeared to throw punches towards crestfallen Swindon players.

    天空体育的摄像机捕捉到了淡水河谷球迷在球场上与对手球员发生争执的那一刻, 在混战中似乎被打出拳头.

    杰克佩恩, Ben Gladwin 和 Jake O'Brien 似乎是球迷们瞄准的三位 Swindon 明星, 在安全人员很快介入以将他们从麻烦中拉出来之前.

    Sky Sports pundit Danny Gabbidon said: ‘What we’re seeing now, those stewards really need to get the Swindon players down the tunnel and away from some of these fans.

    ‘Some unsavoury scenes we never like to see. Some Port Vale fans goading those Swindon Town players who are reluctant to get off the field of play.

    ‘Harry McKirdy was escorted off quickly as a few Port Vale tried to get to him. Unsavoury scenes which will mar a fantastic night for Port Vale.

    Swindon boss Ben Garner also said: `他们不得不忍受离开那个球场… 球员受到身体和语言上的虐待.

    “我知道我在其他一些季后赛中看到过, 我不知道我们作为一个国家要去哪里,这绝对令人作呕。’

    Swindon right-back Mandela Egbo took to Twitter to lambast Vale fans after the invasion, accusing them of throwing punches but only managing a ‘scratch’.

    Along with a selfie which shows a scratch on his nose, Egbo wrote: ‘How you scummy fans get two free shots and only manage a scratch?

    ‘And I’m supposed to keep my coolif I react I’m the bad guy right?’

    The shocking incident comes on a week which has seen a number of fixtures in both the Premier League and EFL marred by fan violence and unrest.

    On Tuesday night Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp was headbutted by a supporter during a pitch invasion after their Championship playoff semi-final defeat against Nottingham Forest, with a man subsequently arrested and jailed for 26 weeks over the incident.

    Forest insist they will be issuing a life ban over the attack on Sharp, who later branded the culprit a ‘scumbag’.

    Sharp’s team-mate Oli McBurnie was also at the centre of controversy after footage emerged which appear to show the United striker stamping on a Forest fan during the pitch invasion.

    One day later two Northampton fans broke onto the pitch after their League Two playoff semi-final loss at home to Mansfield and made a beeline for the latter’s players, while reports even suggested a flare was thrown towards them.

    EFL chiefs threatened clubs with stadium closures and points deductions on Wednesday night, 在森林发生麻烦后发表声明说: “我们认识到这种无法无天的行为是由少数人进行的,大多数参加比赛的人都是他们俱乐部的功劳.

    '然而, 鉴于 EFL 的目标是确保我们的比赛对所有人保持安全和欢迎,球迷在任何时候进入比赛场地都是不可接受的.

    “今年夏天,我们将考虑采取哪些进一步措施, 包括可能使用容量减少或类似的缓解措施. Punitive action will follow for those who continue to disregard ground regulations and break the law at matches.’

    On the same night Port Vale fans swarmed the pitch and threw punches at Swindon players, Goodison Park descended into chaos as Everton came from two goals down to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 and secure their Premier League safety.

    Amidst wild scenes at a jubilant Goodison, Palace boss Patrick Vieira appeared to kick a pitch-invader after being goaded while leaving the field.
