The Dutch FA have ordered an independent investigation into the crowd trouble which forced the postponement of Sunday´s Eredivisie game between FC Groningen and Ajax.

The match was called off after home fans set fire to rolls of toilet paper in the stands, shrouding the Euroborg stadium in smoke. On the advice of medics, the referee deemed the conditions unsuitable for play.

The game will be staged on Wednesday night, providing the damage to the stadium has been repaired, but the KNVB are keen to get to the bottom of Sunday´s events.
