Wolves target action against pitch invaders

28 April 2013 13:38

Wolves will work with police to bring any supporters to justice who committed serious offences during their 2-1 loss to Burnley on Saturday.

The mood was very tense after the home side moved one step nearer back-to-back relegations with one steward assaulted, players confronted, advertising hoardings kicked down and the home dug-out damaged.

The pitch invasion occurred in the wake of the defeat that all but condemns the Midlands side to their second successive relegation, unless they win heavily next weekend and their rivals for the drop lose.

Players Roger Johnson and Kevin Doyle were targeted, while supporters called for the departure of owner Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey.

West Midlands Police will review CCTV footage and Inspector Richard Cox said: "The encroachment of the pitch by approximately 300 Wolves supporters was a disappointing end to an otherwise exciting and trouble-free game.

"During the course of the fixture only one arrest was made and that was a teenager who attempted to enter the ground drunk.

"In the coming days officers will be working with club officials to explore how people were able to evade security and get on to the pitch.

"Together we will review CCTV and where necessary seek to arrest anyone who may have committed a serious offence."

Wolves boss Dean Saunders added: "Everyone takes the blame in this situation. If you are in charge of any company you get the blame.

"Like me, I am in a position where if I don’t get results I will get criticised and I have to take it on the chin."
