Around 300 supporters invaded the pitch following Wolves' defeat to Burnley

Approximately 300 people who were sat in the home end invaded the Molineux pitch following last month's 2-1 loss to Burnley.

A number of stewards were assaulted and damage was caused to the dugout, part of one of the stands and several advertising hoardings.

Officers have been working closely with the club and want to hear from anyone who recognises any of the people in the images and can help to identify them.

PC Sean Cockerton, from West Midlands Police football unit, said: "The scenes at the final whistle last weekend were completely unacceptable and we are working hard to identify those involved.

"It was a very disappointing end to an otherwise exciting and trouble free game.

"We would ask the people in those images to come forward and speak to us and we would also appeal to anyone who can help identify them to call as soon as possible."

The defeat to Burnley left Wolves on the brink of successive relegations.

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
