Crystal Palace defender Clint Hill has criticised the Sheffield Wednesday fans who came onto the field following the Owls' relegation at Hillsborough on Sunday.

Palace ensured they would be playing Championship football next season and condemned Alan Irvine's side to League One with a thrilling 2-2 draw.

The afternoon was overshadowed by the scenes at the final whistle when jubilant Eagles fans spilled onto the pitch to celebrate, with the home supporters following and scuffles breaking out.

Hill had been celebrating in front of the away fans and was attempting to return to the safety of the dressing room when he became caught up in the fracas.

The Football Association is expected to launch an investigation and both clubs could find themselves facing disciplinary action.


Hill said: "I know they are frustrated, but should they be throwing punches at people?

"A good few landed and I am a big lad and can take them. It is disappointing.

"At one point there was maybe seven or eight [fans] on me.

"Somebody said that they saw a 50-year-old woman getting hurt.

"I am not going to make a thing of it but, if the club ban them, they will get what they deserve."
