Police have confirmed they will be mounting a a three-way operation, with officers from Humberside, South Yorkshire and British Transport Police on hand to avoid a potential flare-up at Doncaster railway station.

Insp Will Jenkins, the match commander for the Iron’s match against Millwall, said: “We are working in partnership with our colleagues in South Yorkshire Police – who are leading on the Grimsby Town v Doncaster Rovers match – and British Transport Police to ensure that both matches are safe, enjoyable, family occasions.

“A zero tolerance approach will be taken towards anyone planning to come along to get involved in violence and disorder.

“This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated and we will take the strongest possible action against anyone found to be involved.”
