A witness told The Durham Tab: "Fights were sparked after Durham scored what they thought was a last-minute winner before seeing it disallowed, and Exeter went on to win on penalty flicks.

"I would estimate at least six or seven fans from both sides were kicked out by security".

The entire match was streamed to BUCS Facebook page.
