Huddersfield charged by the FA after fans invaded the pitch in the play-off against Luton


Huddersfield have been accused by the Football Association of failing to police their fans following their Sky Bet Championship semi-final win over Luton.

Some Terriers fans took to the pitch after their side beat Luton 1-0 in the second leg at John Smith’s Stadium to secure a 2-1 aggregate win.

Luton boss Nathan Jones called some of the Huddersfield fans an “absolute disgrace” at his post-match press conference.

Some Terriers supporters ran outside to taunt Luton fans, while Jones said he and some of his players were mistreated by others.

The FA said: “Huddersfield Town FC have been charged with breaching FA rule E20.1 following their EFL Championship game against Luton Town FC on Monday 16th May 2022.

“It is alleged that Huddersfield Town FC failed to ensure that its spectators, and all persons claiming to be supporters or supporters, conducted themselves in an orderly manner and/or refrained from using provocative behavior and / or threatening and / or violent while encroaching on the field at the end of the game.

“Huddersfield Town FC have until Monday 11 July 2022 to respond.”

The first leg at Kenilworth Road had ended 1-1 before Jordan Rhodes’ only late goal handed the Terriers a 1-0 victory in the second leg and a place in the Wembley final, which they lost 1 -0 against Nottingham Forest.
