Former Leeds United striker Alan Smith had to be rescued by police after being attacked on his return to West Yorkshire at the Galpharm Stadium.

Taunted by Huddersfield fans after going on as a late substitute, MK Dons striker Smith found himself in the midst of an angry mob during a pitch invasion at the end and was helped down the tunnel by police and his manager Karl Robinson.

“It was embarrassing,” said Robinson. “The Huddersfield fans were magnificent and had this place rocking but it’s one or two muppets, that’s all it is.

“He got spat at kicked and punched. He’s fine, but you get worse than that. I’ve been brought up in Liverpool!”

Smith scored an injury-time consolation after Daniel Powell had cancelled out a strike from Huddersfield’s Jordan Rhodes.
