Michael Brown says pitch invasions were very worrying

Port Vale manager Michael Brown says that pitch invasions were “very disappointing” and “very worrying.”

The game against Bolton Wanderers was delayed after fans from both sides entered the playing area and the teams were taken off the pitch.

It is very disappointing. When security staff are actually taking the players off the pitch and talking safety, it is very worrying…

The game was then delayed for around ten minutes before it was able to resume.

Speaking after the game, Brown told the media: “It is very disappointing. When security staff are actually taking the players off the pitch and talking safety, it is very worrying.

“I think we understand fans want to celebrate and it is a fine line how far people take it and unfortunately some people take it that bit far.

It knocked the impact for everybody, I think for both teams it did change it. It let them consolidate a little bit and for us it was a case of trying to get going again.”
