The Football Association is investigating the crowd trouble at the Championship match between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds on Friday night which saw home keeper Chris Kirkland attacked by a fan.

A number of Leeds supporters ran on to the pitch after Michael Tonge equalised in the 1-1 draw at Hillsborough and one man confronted Kirkland before shoving him in the face with both hands, knocking him to the floor.

An FA spokesman told Press Association Sport: "We are investigating the events of last night and awaiting the referee's report."
