Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland was assaulted on the field during the Yorkshire derby against Leeds, which ended 1-1.
The former England international, 31, had just conceded a 77th-minute equaliser to Michael Tonge when the incident happened, with a man running onto the field from the Leppings Lane End which was housing the Leeds fans, and appearing to punch Kirkland in the face.
The man then returned to the stand while trouble continued around him, with a number of other visiting supporters running on and off the field and stewards struggled to contain them. Trouble had been brewing throughout the night, with a section of the away support throwing bottles on the field as they clashed with stewards and police.
