Extra officers will be on duty for Norwich City’s Championship clash with Leeds United, police have confirmed.

Leeds will face Daniel Farke’s Canaries side at Carrow Road at 3pm on Saturday (August 25) for the latest instalment of a fixture which has had something of a troubled past.

A police spokesman said West Yorkshire Police will be assisting by sending the Norfolk force by sending officers to the match which has prompted a warning that action will be taken against those intent on causing trouble.

As previously reported there were sporadic skirmishes between supporters before and after the March 2010 clash in Norwich, while in 2014 police arrested six people at the match at Carrow Road.

During that game, five were detained in connection with “an incident of disorder” in the bar area of the Jarrolds stand involving Leeds fans during which a smoke bomb was set off.
