The police got involved ahead of penalty shootout between Burnley and Leeds

Before the match against Leeds United, Burnley announced a new sponsorship deal with betting firm Ladbrokes, with one of the stands in Turf Moor now being "branded" as the "Ladbrokes Stand".

The English Football League has confirmed the penalty shoot-out in Leeds' Carabao Cup win at Burnley was taken in front of home supporters in the interests of crowd safety.
