Nearly a month on from Preston North End’s game with Blackpool, which was marred by a pitch invasion, Lancashire Police have released these images.

A steward was pushed into the path of a police horse and suffered injuries.

Police now want to question the man pictured in connection with thsi incident.

Detective Inspector Paddy O’Neill from Preston Police who is leading the investigation said: “Over the past few weeks we have been studying CCTV footage from various sources, and we are keen to trace and question this man in relation to the assault on the steward.

“We now believe the man ran onto the pitch from the Sir Tom Finney stand so it is likely that he watched the game from that stand. He is a stocky white male, with a shaven or bald head, and was wearing jeans and a distinctive dark green jacket with a hood, and a full length red zip. If anyone can identify this man I would urge them to come forward and contact the police.

“The investigation into the incidents before, during and after the fixture continues, and will continue for the foreseeable future. Further arrests are anticipated.”

Twenty people have now been arrested for a number of offences before, during and after the game.

Anyone with any information should call Preston Police on 101.
