• Police arrest Brentford fan after incident at Griffin Park
• Wigan report hate crime after Nathan Byrne abused online
Police are investigating multiple allegations of racist abuse against Football League players – with Derby, Wigan and Northampton all reporting incidents.
Brentford confirmed a season-ticket holder was arrested at Griffin Park on Saturday after confronting Derby’s Duane Holmes, who was in the dugout having been substituted during their 3-3 draw. Holmes’s manager, Frank Lampard, said: “A fan came up to him and abused him … it was very clearly reported by the players and the people around.”
