Millwall fans fight each other after their Championship defeat at Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon with the game ending 3-1.
Footage has emerged onto social media appearing to show them having a scrap on the 73rd minute at the Cardiff City Stadium.
The story is still developing, however it’s claimed that the stewards had told the fans to sit down, and that is what started the punch up in the stands.
There are also allegations on social media that some Lions fans made the plane gesture to taunt the opposition, something that will no doubt be investigated.

Millwall’s fans grabbed the headlines before kick off as they continued to boo the Bluebirds players who took the knee along with their manager and the referee.
Manager Gary Rowett got himself caught up in the debate about the anti-racism gesture by failing to condemn the booing of the Fulham players during their midweek visit to The Den.
Rowett issued a plea for ‘a more positive’ alternative to the act that has gained support falling largely on deaf ears and earned him plenty of criticism from fellow pundits and fans alike. His players opted to stand, rather than kneel.
Cardiff boss Mick McCarthy, whose first game in charge as a manager was at Millwall 29 years ago, confirmed his support for the act and joined his players and assistant, Terry Connor, in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.
The home fans showed which side of the fence they were on in the great debate as they clapped enthusiastically to reveal their support.
Aden Flint has now scored four goals in the space of five days by following up his point-saving double at Peterborough with another brace as Cardiff’s unbeaten Championship run stretched to four games with a 3-1 triumph over Millwall.
The defender broke the deadlock in the 66th minute when he headed home from a Ryan Giles free-kick and then converted another Giles cross three minutes later, giving his side a two-goal cushion.
The Lions looked done for, however they got one back seven minutes later thanks to on-loan striker Benik Afobe – gettinghis second of the week – and then hit the woodwork minutes later.
It looked set to be an uncomfortable final 10 minutes for the hosts, then took a turn for the better when Sean Morrison came between two defenders to head home a Marlon Pack long throw and extend the lead.
The two teams came into the game after suffering two different fates in their midweek fixtures. Millwall lost 2-1 at home by Fulham, while Cardiff escaped with a 2-2 draw at Peterborough courtesy of a 96th-minute goal from Flint.
