Trouble flares after Wigan beat Manchester City

Fan trouble broke out at the DW Stadium after Wigan Athletic’s 1-0 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup on Monday evening.

Hundreds of home fans spilled onto the pitch after the final whistle and one supporter was seen confronting Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.

A number of Wigan fans also made their way towards the away supporters section and began to taunt them, sparking further disorder.

In response, angry City fans started to throw bottles and other objects towards the provokers. Then they ripped out advertising hoardings and threw them at cops who formed a cordon around them. There was also a short confrontation between City fans and cops in front of the stands.
