Dundee United supporters’ groups have expressed their “shock” after unsavoury scenes developed following last night’s powder keg play-off match with Hamilton Accies.
A woman was allegedly struck with a traffic cone during a melee among fans.
Supporters’ group members said today there were “concerns” about Sunday’s Premiership play-off decider with Hamilton at the Superseal Stadium.
Andy Sturrock, 38, of the Mighty Arabs, said: “We never saw the incident but were made aware of it via other supporters.
“We understand barriers were thrown and a woman was struck with a cone.
“I was certainly surprised to hear of this happening.
“Some of the decisions on the pitch maybe had a knock-on effect on the reaction outside the ground but given what has happened there are some concerns of what might happen during the return leg.”
Mark McMahon, 54, of the Arctic Arabs, said that he is hoping for a peaceful return leg, with a large support making its way to Hamilton on Sunday.
A police spokesman said they had not received any reports about the alleged assault.
A police spokesman said: “Police Scotland is aware some disorderly conduct outside Tannadice Stadium on Thursday 26th May after the Scottish Premiership Play-Off match between Dundee United and Hamilton Academical.
“No formal complaints have been received, however the circumstances of the incident are being reviewed.”
