Millwall v Wigan: Trouble Mars Semi-Final

Today's game was of course overshadowed somewhat by the outbreak of trouble in Millwall end of the stadium midway through the second of Wigan's 2-0 victory.

It is unclear what sparked the trouble that involved around 20-30 fans but it appeared as though both police and stewards were slow to intervene following the outbreak which began shortly after Callum McManaman scored Wigan's second. A Millwall spokesman admitted that 'the game has been overshadowed' by the incident.

A Met police statement following the game read:

'Ten people have been arrested following sporadic disorder amongst fans in the Millwall area at Wembley today. The investigation into the circumstance of the instance is ongoing'.

The FA also confirmed the following statement:

'The Metropolitan police and FA are investigating scenes of sporadic risk and disorder at today's semi-final. 'The FA and Wembley Stadium will work with the police and representatives of Millwall Football Club to review all events.'
