A Preston North End steward was trampled by a police horse after a pitch invasion following the League One's side Capital One Cup victory over Blackpool on Monday night.

A late goal by Tom Clarke sealed the win for Preston over their Lancashire rivals, but the result was tarnished by crowd trouble after the final whistle.

Police horses were brought onto the pitch to contain a section of supporters who had entered the field of play.

Reports claim missiles were launched, and the police horses were drafted in to deal with the invasion - but one steward was knocked over and trampled in the ensuing trouble.

He was taken to the hospital for treatment to a shoulder injury.

But Blackpool manager Paul Ince was furious when speaking after the match about the crowd trouble. 

He said: "It's a joke, I don't know if there was enough stewarding. I can understand fans' excitement but we should stamp down on that.

"We have meetings, but people are not listening. Has someone got to get stabbed? It's not just Preston, it's football in general."

Here's the incident Ince is talking about...
