According to Examiner Live, police officers were seen running down Leeds Road in Huddersfield town center and confronted a number of fans who faced the officers with their batons.

The two groups of supporters were driven away from each other with the Millwall set entering the station.

City fans were leaving St George’s Square and the remaining fans had to be dispersed by the police.

The match itself saw Huddersfield exit the Championship table with a dominating display in a 1-0 win over Millwall.

The visiting team, which had won four in a row before the start of the match, suffered an early setback and failed to recover.

Yuta Nakayama broke the deadlock by scoring a monstrous goal in nine minutes with a misfiring cross giving his side the lead.

The struggling Terriers tightened their grip and almost got a second when Sorba Thomas hit the post.

But their failure to double the advantage went unpunished as Mark Fotheringham oversaw his second win as new Huddersfield boss.

from Huddersfield Mark Fotheringham“I’m really pleased with the group, their efforts and their work ethic today – it’s given us a good platform to build on. They are really starting to grow as a group and we just have to bring calm to everything and not be too disappointed if we lose.

“All we want to do this season is stay in the league because we know the club is in a period of transition. The players have never lost confidence at any point and they are really focused on their training and “It’s coming to fruition. I want players who are fit and aggressive and from front to back we’ve looked solid. We’re forming a tough team to play against now; we look very strong.

Millwall’s Gary Rowet“They are fighting for their lives and we knew it would be a tough game if we didn’t do the right things. We’ve had four wins in a row and as a manager you always have that worry in your mind about those types of games.

“You have to give Huddersfield credit; I thought they were working incredibly hard and they looked like an absolutely desperate team to get this win. In the second half we were better, but again we didn’t put good balls in the right areas, and we went too straight in the last 10 minutes.

Social media users reacted to the ugly scenes after Huddersfield and Millwall fans clashed as police made a number of arrests…

@NatSufc99: Millwall don’t travel in huge numbers overall, but the proportion of their fans who go is definitely something to see.

will.adds_: This generation can’t rest, when they do something they don’t care about and when they don’t they get bullied just for staying there. At least make it consistent, respect for these guys to have a pop at each other

t.silva.h: A lot of gazelles go the other way 😂😂 Best Days Away 🍺 🔥👏
