Some fans have been denied entry to Hillsborough Stadium after a fight breaks out prior to a recent Sheffield Wednesday game.
Mobile phone footage emerged from outside the Rawson Spring pub on Langsett Road, Hillsborough, before the League One clash with Shrewsbury Town at the weekend.
It unfortunately showed a group of men knocking another man to the ground in the middle of the road and kicking him as he was down.

It has since been reported by The Star that the attackers then quickly fled the scene after beating up the fan and leaving him hurt on the ground.
When asked about the incident, South Yorkshire Police said: “Officers monitoring the Sheffield Wednesday v Shrewsbury Town fixture on Saturday, September 18 were called to the Hillsborough Corner area at about 2.05pm to reports of public order offences involving away fans.
“Some incidents were witnessed, and as a result a handful of away fans were refused entry to Hillsborough Stadium for being too drunk and were escorted from the South Yorkshire Police force area.”

The weekend saw plenty of fights playing out between different fanbases, making for busy work with police, security and stewards inside and outside stadiums.
A video done the rounds, and it showed one fan get sparked out as Newcastle and Leeds United supporters clash before Friday’s Premier League meeting.
Police were criticised on social media by some of those who attended the game, with allegations of multiple officers ‘battering’ individuals with batons. See more on that HERE.
Hull City fans have been video recorded getting themselves in a punch-up with Sheffield United supporters in the stadium’s away end.
Not only did fists get thrown between the two sets of fans, but a Sheffield United fan was caught live on Sky Sports making the slit throat gesture to those in the opposite end. More on that HERE.
Also, another video went viral appearing to show Burnley and Arsenal fans fight each other following the full time whistle on Saturday.
It is unclear as to why chaos broke out, but the Burnley PA had to urge ‘all supporters to leave the stadium immediately’ with a large number of objects are being thrown. See that HERE.
