during the Emirates FA Cup third round replay between Lincoln City and Ipswich Town at Sincil Bank Stadium on January 17, 2017 in Lincoln, England.

The match in Austria, which Leeds lost 2-1, passed without incident until a group of 100 Frankfurt supporters, some of them wearing balaclavas, confronted a contigent of Leeds fans after the final whistle.

Police with batons and dogs fought to form a cordon on the pitch, but one Leeds fan and one officer needed medical treatment after the clashes.

The players had left the pitch, however, and were unharmed.
