The trouble continued inside the ground when fans tried to take on police officers, only for there to be lots of pushing and shoving.

One officer tried to calm down the situation in the concourse, but left some in hysterics after knocking off his head gear with his baton as can be seen in the video clip below.

There has been no comment made on any of the football police’s social media accounts about arrests made.

The match itself was goalless until the 61st minute when Shaun Williams gave Millwall the lead excellent long-range opener.

That was cancelled out however by central defender Jake Clarke-Salter, on loan from Chelsea, who headed home his first Blues goal from a corner 11 minutes from time.

Birmingham boss Pep Clotet said after the game: “I want to praise the side for coming back into a very difficult game and remind the players that Millwall went ahead against Swansea and it was impossible for Swansea to get back into the game.

“We want to remind ourselves of how we can do better, how can we can create more chances and how we can take more chances.

We were unlucky that the referee could not see two clear penalties in my opinion. That would have changed the game but we don’t use that as an excuse.”

Millwall manager Gary Rowett added: “I wouldn’t say I was pleased. The first half was very good – we were by far the better side, and we created a lot of chances.

“When we counter-attacked, we did it well. Our shape was good, we negated a lot. We had a great chance with Matt Smith which would normally be a tap-in for him but it was a great save from Connal Trueman.

“In the second half we ran out of steam a bit, and ran out of composure.”
