Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira appeared to clash with a fan while there was another confrontation in League Two as English football was once again marred by pitch invasions.

The incidents came as supporters broke onto the pitch in Everton’s comeback win over Palace, and Port Vale’s League Two play-off victory against Swindon.

Everton achieved Premier League safety having come back from 2-0 down to win 3-2, while Vale will be heading to Wembley to face Mansfield for a place in League One.

Sadly though, both matches were tarnished by confrontations between professionals on pitch and invading supporters in scenes that are quickly becoming all too common.

talkSPORT host Dean Saunders was disturbed by what he’d seen, and expressed his concern that things are only going to get worse.

Someone’s going to get stabbed next. Something bad, really bad,” Saunders said on The Sports Bar.

“That’s bad what happened to Billy Sharp, we’ve seen that incident with Oli McBurnie, he’ll be in trouble for what he’s done.
