    Trouble at Yorkshire Derby

    Football fans were left bloodied as shocking violence marred Barnsley's clash with Leeds on Sunday.

    Trouble broke out in Barnsley's Oakwell Stadium after Leeds took the lead through Arsenal loanee Eddie Nketiah in the 84th minute.

    Celebrations spilled over in some parts of the stadium, resulting in clashes with local police officers.

    Punches are alleged to have been thrown at Barnsley stewards, with Leeds preparing to make a statement on the trouble.

    The trouble continued as the game was played to its conclusion, as Leeds grabbed a second goal from the penalty spot to secure a 2-0 win.

    One fan is alleged to have ran around the perimeter of the pitch from the away end to threaten home fans, but was hauled away by officers.

    Some fans were left bloodied by the violence.

    South Yorkshire Police have been contacted by Mirror Online regarding the incident.

    Asked about the crowd trouble, Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa said: I feel pity that something like that happened, but I didn't see it.

    It is unclear what started the violence, but it is suggested that some Leeds fans were in the home end of the stadium.

    On the pitch, it took 84 minutes for Leeds to break a spirited Barnsley outfit, would could have been out of sight after missing their own chances.

    The opener was created by Kalvin Phillips, fresh from signing a new five year deal, who curled an in-swinging free kick to the back post that was impossible to defend.

    It's a minority Jules, why should we charge normal fans 100 when the vast majority are just here to watch the football. If our hooligan element misbehaved and you were charged 100 at an away match because of them tha wunt be too chuffed.

    Leeds fans in the east stand today goading reds when they scored , not the greatest idea in the world and took a hiding apparently .

    Not condoning violence but you do that then its highly likely there will be consequences .

    Every time we play this lot it always kicks off , I'm not suggesting we are angels by any means but it's hardly a coincidence is it ?

    Aye they did same a couple year back fo that setdy neet game. Trouble in ponty end after wood scored opening goal and some bother in east stand too that night. These incidents simply make police bring kick off times forward for local derbies and spoil it for the rest.

    I haven't a problem with away fans sitting in the home areas if they are respectful and behave .

    The lads at work will be taking me with them in the The John Smiths Stadium home area when we play Huddersfield in October .

    When Woodrow puts us in front on 83 minutes I'm unlikely to jump up and celebrate our winner whilst telling the town fans surrounding me " your going down with the Stoke " .

    No I'll sit on my hands and keep my emotions to myself .

    I'd suggest if you enter the home areas and goad the home fans trying to gain some badge of honour your motives were to create trouble and if you took a hiding you got what you came for .

    I’d understand, and be prepared to report the miscreants the next time ESR. Most definitely... wouldn’t you?

    Because the behaviour then will not be tolerated by their fans, not CELEBRATED.
    Punish the lot, the idiots will then be brought into line by their own. .... snowflake discipline never works.
    I’ve already heard plenty of Terriers fans spouting about how they are going to get free beer when they come to Oakwell, and we will not learn from previous seasons poor fan behaviour.

    Punishing the lot never works either. Hooligans in the 70s caused fencing to be brought to football grounds. Nobody brought the hooligans into line. It's part of life Jules, there's always a few villages missing their idiots when it comes to football and indeed life in general. It's summat thaz just got to accept. If opposition fans purchase tickets for the home end and are tactless enough to show no respect then unless they're ejected and issued banning orders by the authorities then I dont see how they can be brought into line by their own. Everybody is individual, look at the Hillsborough game earlier this season. There was talk of boycotting the game due to the extortionate ticket prices but not much unity in regards of getting the wheels in motion to make a firm stand because people have a choice to do what they want to do.

    I’ve been in the home ends before myself but like has been said it depends on the person and how they behave

    Police reveal more details about arrests after Leeds United's clash against Barnsley at Oakwell

    Three Leeds United fans were arrested after trouble flared at Oakwell on Sunday.


    A 24-year-old man, believed to be a Leeds fan, was arrested on suspicion of assault, following reports a steward had been assaulted within the ground.

    He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

    Footage on social media appeared to show a steward rugby tackling a Leeds fan, who was then escorted from the stadium.

    Crowd trouble erupted after Arsenal loanee Eddie Nketiah scored six minutes from time which sparked wild celebrations in the away end behind the goal, where 4,400 Whites supporters were housed.

    A separate incident then occurred with home supporters in the East Stand.

    Two men in their 40s were arrested on suspicion of affray following reports of a disturbance within the ground at the end of the match.

    They have been released while enquiries continue. Both are believed to be Leeds fans.

    A fourth man was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence following the match on Schwabisch Gmund Way. He is believed to be a Barnsley fan.

    Barnsley FC have said they are looking into the incidents.

    A Leeds United spokesman said earlier today: "Leeds United and Barnsley Football Club are greatly disappointed by reports of violence at yesterday’s game and will be working together to assess the matter."
