Carlisle have appealed to their fans for help with the Football Association's on-going investigation into the pitch invasion after their Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Leeds in February.

Leeds confirmed after their penalty shootout defeat in the northern area final at Brunton Park that they would launch an official complaint after claiming several of their players had been attacked by Carlisle fans who had run on to the pitch at the final whistle.

A Carlisle spokesman said: "There have been no charges raised by any of the Leeds officials in relation to allegations that fans approached their players at the end of the game, but we would like our supporters to assist us in trying to identify individuals who entered the field of play on that night."

The spokesman added: "The images are taken as stills from a video camera, but we hope that they will lead to a positive identification.

"It's our last home game of the season on Saturday, against Walsall, and we would ask our fans to stay in place in their seats and on the terraces.

"The fact of the matter is that there's an ongoing investigation and we want to show the authorities that we are continuing to do things properly, as we have all season."
