Police release pictures of men they want to speak to after trouble at Millwall v Crystal Palace FA Cup game

Police have release pictures of two men they want to trace after bottles were thrown on to the pitch at a football match.

Cops investigating the incident during the South London derby between Millwall and Crystal Palace at the Den on January 8.

During the second half of the FA Cup third round game – which Palace won 2-1 – projectiles, including a glass bottle, were thrown from the home stand towards the playing area.

Inspector Matt Ashmead, from the Central Football Unit, said: “The vast majority of football fans go to matches simply to enjoy themselves and support their team.

“Sadly, a small minority are intent on causing trouble and resorting to violence. We are committed to identifying them and ensuring they face appropriate sanctions.

“We have a close relationship with clubs across London, and in this case, we have worked with Millwall to identify those involved.

“I would appeal to the public to come forward with any information that could help us to identify the two men.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101, giving the reference 3200839/22.

Information can also be provided to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
