Club statement

Following an incident which resulted in a supporter leaving the stadium during a break in play in today’s pre-season fixture at home to Bradford City, a club statement has been issued.

A club spokesperson said: “After being made aware of the alleged comment, stewards and police officers spoke to the fan in question, who denied the accusation and left voluntarily.

“Witness statements have been taken as part of an investigation and, if necessary, appropriate action will be taken.

“Our club and Community Trust does a lot of work around anti-racism and racist comments at our stadium will not be tolerated.”
