A HUDDERSFIELD Town fan says police are too heavy- handed in their approach to tackling football hooliganism.
Stan Frontczak, 40, of Lockwood, says his family have twice been treated badly by police at Town matches.
He said the latest incident involved his 23-year-old son, Colin, and came before Town's match with Nottingham Forest last Saturday.
Colin, from Manchester, and a friend had travelled by train to Huddersfield to watch the game.
At Huddersfield railway station police asked him if he was going to the match. He said he was.
He and his friend were then put on a police bus outside the station and told they would not be making their own way to the Galpharm Stadium.
Colin had arranged to meet Mr Frontczak and his younger brother, Christopher, at the station.
Mr Frontczak and Christopher, 18, had travelled into town by train from Lockwood.
Mr Frontczak said: "Not all the supporters were put on the bus, just certain ones.
"Most fans just want to go to the game without being hassled by opposition fans or the police.
"Decent supporters are being alienated by the overbearing actions of the police."
Mr Frontczak said this incident angered him because it was the second time this year that members of his family had had problems with the police before a Town game.
The first incident was in March, at the Ring O' Bells pub, on Bolton Road in Bradford.
Town were playing Bradford at Valley Parade and Mr Frontczak was in the pub with his two sons.
He said that as he was coming out of the toilets he saw police ordering everyone out of the pub.
He said there had been no chanting or trouble and so asked what was going on.
Mr Frontczak says a policeman told him to shut up and he was then hit across the arm with a baton and grabbed and put on a bus to the game with other fans.
Mr Frontczak says police targeted him again after the game, as he was leaving Valley Parade.
He said two officers put him on a bus - despite him wanting to go to Bradford Interchange to catch his intended bus home.
Mr Frontczak complained to West Yorkshire Chief Constable Colin Cramphorn about the incident and received a letter of apology.
He also plans to complain about last Saturday's incident.
Chief Inspector Dave Pighills, of Kirklees police, said officers were at Huddersfield railway station as part of a routine operation to deal with large groups of supporters.
He said: "We have a policy of meeting and greeting fans at railway stations for high-profile matches to transport them safely to the ground.
"Our primary purpose in doing this is to ensure the safety of fans and minimise disruption to the people of Huddersfield."
Chief Insp Pighills said West Yorkshire Police had a complaints procedure and any issues relating to police behaviour would be fully investigated.
