Huddersfield Town manager Chris Powell said he felt for the travelling fans after the abandonment of the final Championship match of the season at Blackpool.
It was 0-0 at Bloomfield Road when home supporters invaded the pitch in protest at Karl Oyston's running of the relegated seaside club.
Forty seven minutes had been played, but the match was officially called off an hour and 11 minutes later with protestors still on the pitch.
"I feel sorry for our fans first and foremost because they have paid out for tickets and accommodation, we've had cyclists on the Pedal for Pounds and they all, like us, wanted to see a Town win," said Powell.

"We had chances to possibly win the game as well but what's eventually happened is something I have never seen in football before.
"What will happen as a result we don't know, and to be fair to the referee he was in a little bit of shock. But he handled it very well, he was getting advice from the police and safety officer and they tried their best to get the game on.
"In the end though they couldn't guarantee our safety or the Blackpool players, and they couldn't guarantee that if the match started again those fans wouldn't come back on the pitch again.
"It's a strange way to end the season. I don't know what would happen with a replay because half my team are going away on Tuesday.
"It's a shame because we wanted the three points and it would take us above Leeds, which is a big thing because I understand the culture of our fans and my club and we want to do the best we can and go forward."
