Millwall and Birmingham fans fight at full time with male rushed to hospital

Millwall and Birmingham fans took to fight at full time with one male rushed to hospital after an incident outside the ground.

Footage has emerged showing trouble break out at St Andrew’s as both sets of supporters clashed, taking to throwing first, bottles and chairs.

It wasn’t just inside the stands as Millwall fans were alleged to have goaded the Blues fanbase only for it to turn very nasty very quick.

The game finished 2-2, however there was plenty of action going on off the pitch at the end.

Stewards tried to to get themselves in between the two sets of supporters, with one appearing to have punches swung at him.

Millwall manager Gary Rowett said after the game: “We don’t want to see these sort of scenes at matches.

“My daughter was in the away end today.

“We don’t want to see this and I’m sure that both clubs will look at what happened.”


“An investigation is underway after a football fan was assaulted near to St Andrews stadium this afternoon (Saturday 23 April). 

“A 30-year-old man from Smethwick was arrested a short time after the assault which has left a 60-year-old Millwall fan seriously injured. 

“It is believed that the man, from London, was with his family and had just arrived at the home of Birmingham City football club when he was assaulted on Cattell Road. 

“The large policing operation in the area for the match, meant the man was well cared for before being taken to hospital. 

“The crime happened shortly before 3pm. The motive is unknown at this time. 

“We’re working closely with both football clubs and are supporting the man’s family. 

“We have spoken to witnesses, reviewed CCTV footage and have already forensically examined the area.

“The arrested man is being held on suspicion of a Section 18 assault. 

“If you saw what happened message us via Live Chat on the right of your screen quoting reference number 2193-23/04/22. 

“If you do not want to speak to us, call the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111. They will not ask your name and will not trace your call. You may also be entitled to a cash reward.” 


The Championship game itself saw Blues score the opener through Juninho Bacuna shortly after the break, however it was later cancelled out by former West Bromwich Albion man, Oliver Burke.

Lyle Taylor then scored from the spot 10 minutes from time before the hosts gave away a penalty to the visitors deep in injury time as Benik Afobe claimed a late point for his side producing wild scenes.

Birmingham’s Lee Bowyer: “I thought from start to finish we were very good. We competed, we won a lot of individual battles and we had to stand up and be counted all over the pitch, man to man, against a very good Millwall side. I believed we deserved to win the game, but yet again, another decision from the officials has cost us more points. It’s never a penalty. To have the performance that we did (last week), to be able to turn that around as a group against a good Millwall side, that was pleasing for me.

“That’ll shut a few people up who say the players don’t play for me. People talk rubbish. You see that performance there and you tell me the players aren’t running about, for me? I think we deserved to win the game but the officials took that away from us and I feel for the players because to turn it around from last week to this week and the criticism they would have taken from everybody. I have to praise the players. Today they were outstanding from start to finish, every single one of them.”

Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “We threw everything we had at it. We made too many mistakes in the game and didn’t do the basics well enough at this stage of the season to pass the ball and open the game up. What we have got is fabulous desire and character. We ended up with Oliver Burke at right wing-back, Tyler Burey at left wing-back and Jake Cooper up front on his own. Maybe just because of that, we deserved something out of the game.

“We’ve got to take care of our own business. We’ve got to win those games and if we win those games, what you’ve seen is teams faltering all around the top 10 and teams with far better squads than ours. But we’re still in there because we’ve got character.”
