Canaries midfielder Andy Hughes could find himself in trouble after becoming involved in an ugly scene seconds after the final whistle went at Carrow Road yesterday afternoon.
Hughes' frustrations boiled over in an incident involving Norwich fans sitting near to the front of the main stand, close to the away team dug-out.
Although it is unclear what sparked the incident, it was obvious that Hughes was upset enough to approach the perimeter wall and remonstrate with the fans in no uncertain terms.

Hughes, who had come on as a 70th-minute substitute for Lee Croft, was clearly livid and had to be restrained by Canaries goalkeeper Paul Gallacher before he was led away down the tunnel.
Police moved in and spoke to several fans, while Hughes emerged later with assistant manager Doug Livermore. They spoke for several minutes on the pitch before Hughes went through a warm-down routine with sports scientist Dave Carolan. It is not clear whether or not police spoke to Hughes after the incident.

Hughes left the ground without speaking to the media, but a club spokesman issued a short statement.
“There was an incident immediately after the game in which some supporters and Andy Hughes were involved in a strong verbal exchange. The matter is being dealt with internally. There is nothing more to add at this moment.”
