ITV commentator Sam Matterface explained: “There’s actually quite a troubling situation here. A kid has had to be taken out of the stand and onto the pitch to get him away from the trouble. [Wolves defender] Craig Dawson has come out and had a quick word to make sure he is okay.
“The police are going over to that corner to try and sort things out and it’s exactly the kind of thing we didn’t want to see. Derby day passion is great, derby day intensity is great, but this sort of overspill is not acceptable in any sense. It’s getting really nasty.
“Police are having to use batons. It’s really ugly. I have to tell you that we are restricting what we are showing you because some of the scenes are undesirable. The situation is not under control and that is the real problem. This is harking back to the bad old days. I can’t remember the last time I saw scenes like this in an English ground.”
