West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster believes that Sheffield Wednesday shot-stopper Chris Kirkland could have been knifed during the incident on Friday evening.

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster believes that footballers could be in danger following the attack on Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland.

A 21-year-old male supporter has been arrested by South Yorkshire police after emerging onto the pitch during a 1-1 draw between Sheffield and Leeds United on Friday and hitting the shot-stopper in the face.

"That lad could have had a blade," said Foster. "It is ridiculous if you think of it like that. It is a bit scary to be honest with you. I hope the law comes down heavily.

"I wish Chris would have flattened him. I wish he had stood up and given him a boot up the a***."

The Football Association announced yesterday that they are also investigating the incident.
