Police investigate unprovoked punch:

Manager Westley checks on his assaulted player
Stevenage beat Newcastle United 3-1 in an FA Cup shock last night, but in a sad end, there was a pitch invasion and Stevenage left-back Scott Laird was punched forcefully in the face and knocked to the ground.
Stevenage manager Graham Westley confirmed what happened at the final whistle:
"Scott Laird was stood celebrating with the fans and a 'fan' just came over and smashed him from the side. He went to the ground and it is a shame for the afternoon to end in that way.
"He is a bit bewildered. He (the fan) gave him a right-hander, just smashed him across the cheek, knocking him to the ground."
Hopefully the "fan" who punched Scott Ledd will be caught, severely reprimanded and never enter a football stadium again.
