Leeds United can confirm that we are investigating incidents which occurred following the penalty shoot-out of our Johnstone's Paint Trophy Area Final second leg at Carlisle United on Tuesday February 9.
Leeds United CEO Shaun Harvey said: "It is our current intention to make a formal complaint to the football authorities about the apparent lack of security arrangements in relation to the safety of our players at Carlisle.
"It is also our intention to supplement the evidence we already have by having further conversations with both Carlisle United Football Club and the Cumbria Police Force."
Leeds United manager Simon Grayson said: "I am still very unhappy at the lack of protection afforded to my players and am pleased that the club will be taking the matter further with the relevant authorities."
Shaun Harvey added: "We'd like to offer our congratulations to Carlisle United on reaching the final of the JPT and we will turn our attentions on the field to our remaining 18 league games and our quest for promotion."
