TWO men were arrested at Huddersfield Town’s derby game against Bradford City.
Trouble flared before the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy second round clash at the Galpharm Stadium on Tuesday night.
But despite pockets of disorder, fans have told how mounted police quickly dispersed crowds.
One eye-witness said: “There was a group of 12 to 15 men causing disturbance in the centre of the road near the Sainsbury’s garage.
“I saw one man being taken away by police by the scruff of his neck.”
Police said no arrests were made outside the ground, but one man was arrested for attending the game when subjected to a football ban and a second man was arrested for invading the pitch.
A police spokesman said: “The Bradford fans pre-match meet was on Bradford Road.
“They went into a couple of the pubs in the area. We monitored them and escorted to the ground, but there were no arrests and no reports of any trouble.
“There were only two arrests inside the ground for minor offences.”
Supt Dave Lunn of Kirklees Police, said: “There was some minor disorder outside the ground caused by a small minority of people who sadly seem to attend football matches with the intention of causing trouble.
“We continually work closely with Huddersfield Town to ensure positive action is taken against anyone causing problems at football matches.”
