Tranmere Rovers striker James Norwood has blasted one of his own fans for allegedly 'punching' a Forest Green player on the head. 

Norwood scored the decisive goal to send Tranmere to the play-off final at the expense of Forest Green at the New Lawn on Monday night. 

The game was marred by some ugly scenes at the final whistle as Tranmere fans invaded the pitch with some clashing with Forest Green players but Norwood revealed one took it too far. 

He tweeted: "Just to clear up I was over the moon we got to Wembley !!! But as I was about to shake an opposing players hand someone ran through and punched him in the head. I don’t agree with that." 

The FA say they are aware of the incident and are looking into it. Forest Green are yet to make a comment.

A Tranmere spokesman also said: "We have been made aware of the tweet by James Norwood. We will be speaking to James to find out any further details as we were not made aware of the incident on the night or by Forest Green.

"We will of course cooperate with Forest Green Rovers and conduct our own internal investigation."​

Meanwhile, Gloucestershire Constabulary have denied a Forest Green player was attacked.

Gloucestershire Constabulary said: “There were initial concerns that someone had made their way onto the pitch and made contact with a player following the final whistle at The New Lawn stadium on Monday evening.

“However CCTV was reviewed and there was seen to be no physical contact or act of aggression.

“On the night we had no reports of an assault and we have since been in contact with Forest Green Rovers to clarify whether any other incidents took place.

“We can confirm that no reports of assault have been made to police.”
