Birmingham City to investigate steward incident during derby match

Birmingham City say they will investigate an incident involving a steward during their 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa in the Championship on Sunday.
Jack Grealish scored the only goal of the game for Aston Villa in the 67th minute and celebrated by jumping in with the away side's fans at St Andrews.
As police officers and stewards tried to come between the players and spectators, one steward appeared to clash with Grealish and his team-mate Conor Hourihane as they tried to get back on to the pitch. The steward was then led away by police officers.
In a statement, West Midlands Police said the steward was spoken to but was not arrested. Birmingham City have said they review everything that goes on at every game and they will investigate the incident.
It followed an unsavoury moment earlier in the match when Grealish was attacked by a fan. The pitch invader swung an arm at the midfielder and knocked him to the floor, before being removed from the ground and later arrested.
