Rovers are taking action to identify fans who took part in disruptive behaviour during last Saturday’s game against Coventry City.

The safety management team, in collaboration with South Yorkshire Police are currently in the process of reviewing extensive CCTV footage, along with police footage taken on the day to identify those involved in pitch incursions. A  number of people have already been identified and appropriate sanctions have been issued
Club staff and police will be taking appropriate action to apply appropriate sanctions in advance of the play-off fixtures. 
Head of stadium and operations Marie Hepburn said: “As a club we are disappointed that a small minority of people attending Saturday’s game marred the celebrations with their behaviour both in the stand and on the pitch at the end of the match.  
“We know that our supporters want to see this type of behaviour dealt with and want to reassure you that the club are taking this very seriously to ensure that you enjoyment of future matches is not affected by those individuals.”
