Police are ready to mount an anti-hooligan operation when Leeds United play at Barnsley this weekend.
South Yorkshire Police’s Chief Supt Andy Brooke said the force was putting extra resources in place for Saturday’s derby game.
And he also warned that his officers would crack down hard on any outbreaks of trouble.
Chief Supt Brooke said: “I have a commitment to ensure people remain safe therefore will be taking a tough approach on anyone that is involved in football-related disorder.
“Anyone caught [indulging in] such behaviour may face a court appearance and a ban from attending all football matches.
“Police and the club stewards will be present at all entrances of the ground and anyone who wishes to attend the turnstiles under the influence of alcohol or in possession of any illegal substances or objects that may cause harm to themselves or others will be refused entry.
“Alcohol will not be served in the ground.
“We will be asking Leeds United fans to remain seated for a couple of minutes after the final whistle to let the crowds disperse.”
