FA to investigate Hillsborough trouble

Published Add your comment

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."
