McClean Alleges Sectarian Abuse

Championship game between Huddersfield and Stoke held up.

Huddersfield Town say they will carry out an investigation into sectarian abuse towards Republic of Ireland international and Stoke City winger James McClean.

Their Championship clash yesterday, which Stoke won 5-2, at the John Smith's Stadium was halted for a period to allow the referee to address both managers.

McClean had reported that he had received abuse from the crowd and he applauded when the announcement was made over the loudspeakers, where fans were warned that 'offensive behaviour will not be tolerated'.
