Hammers, Millwall to learn fate after Boleyn battle

The Football Association are this week set to announce the findings of their investigation into the trouble which flared at West Ham's Carling Cup match against Millwall. Newspaper reports have claimed both clubs will be charged by the FA in connection with the crowd trouble which marred the match at Upton Park on August 25.

The FA announced following the match they would push for football stadium life bans to be imposed on fans who could be identified as trouble-causers. A man was stabbed outside Upton Park and pitch invasions followed West Ham's goals in their 3-1 win.

There were also allegations of racism from West Ham's Carlton Cole and Millwall's Jason Price, who claimed they had been targeted for abuse by supporters.

A statement from the FA said: "The FA's extensive investigations into the events at the recent West Ham versus Millwall fixture are drawing to a close.

"CCTV footage from approximately 47 cameras inside Upton Park is still being examined along with other lines of enquiry.

"Both clubs have co-operated and provided assistance in relation to the enquiry and the FA expects to be in a position to confirm the outcome of the investigation in the coming week.

"The FA has also been liaising closely with the Metropolitan Police in connection with the disorder outside the ground, whilst West Ham published photographs in Saturday's matchday programme to assist in the identification process."
