A visit to Stoke is always a day to watch yer back, as they don't quite seem to have progressed to the level of Premiership mentality yet.

They still live by the rules of the 1970s over in the Potteries, having been hardened to clashes with Millwall over the years.

Police and stewards were called on after trouble flared between two groups outside the South Stand of the Britannia Stadium following the game.

Superintendent Bernie O'Reilly, from Stoke-on-Trent police division, said: "Officers and stewards had to disperse fans from around the South Stand car park area.

"Both groups of fans were intent on confronting each other.

"During this a steward was assaulted and was taken to hospital. Three people have been arrested."
