A Millwall fan is to go on trial accused of disorderly behaviour at Norwich City's Carrow Road ground.

The Canaries beat Millwall 4-3 in a thrilling comeback in the game last November that saw injury time goals from Jordan Rhodes and Teemu Pukki, who netted a 97th minute winner.

Neil Illingworth, 48, appeared at Norwich Magistrates Court on Tuesday, having been charged with being drunk and disorderly in a public place, Carrow Road, on November 10 last year.

Illingworth, of Rotherhite, south-east London, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The case was adjourned for a pre-trial review on February 22.

Illingworth was granted unconditional bail until the next hearing.
