South Yorkshire Police said fans inside the Oakwell Stadium ground hurled missiles at rival supporters.

The force has not confirmed whether the males - two of them young teenagers - were home fans or in the away end, but said one they want to trace was wearing a Barnsley shirt under a jacket.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “Police in Barnsley have released CCTV images of six men they would like to speak to regarding alleged disorder and anti-social behaviour that took place at Barnsley’s Oakwell Stadium.”

All the fans on the CCTV stills are white, of average build, with short hair.
