Gary O’Neil’s team advanced to the fifth round of the competition after a 2-0 win over their neighbors at the Hawthorns. However, the game was suspended with 10 minutes remaining due to violence in the stands. Wolves supporters, who had bought tickets in the home section, initiated the disturbance by celebrating their team’s second goal, leading to clashes with home fans. Some fans, including children, had to flee onto the pitch to avoid the violence. Police intervened and eventually managed to subdue the crowd and keep the two fanbases apart using batons. The game was restarted, and Wolves held out for the final few minutes to secure the victory.

After the game, the FA released a statement condemning the violence as “completely unacceptable” and pledged to catch and punish those involved. The FA emphasized the importance of safety and security and expressed their commitment to investigating the incidents alongside the clubs and relevant authorities.

To prevent similar incidents in the future, decisive actions should be taken to ensure the safety of fans. This may include stricter segregation of rival fans, enhanced security measures, and penalties for those responsible for initiating or participating in violent behavior.
