As police guarded the side door of the coach, Lions supporters goaded the travelling fans before a bottle was thrown at one of the bus windows.

The footage shows dozens of fans throwing punches outside Surrey Keys railway station ahead of the match which took place at Millwall's The Den stadium.

Two police officers on horses were forced to use their batons to break up the brawl.

A man has revealed he can not "even look at myself in the mirror" after being slashed in the face during violent scenes between Everton and Millwall fans. His injuries are not life-threatening.

Officers are yet to make any arrests and a crime scene remains in place.

Footage shared online showed around 50 people clashing as police - including members of the Mounted Branch and Dog Support Unit - attempt to intervene.

In his next over, Cummins teased an attempted drive from Mendis (one), who edged to Joe Burns at second slip. Cummins exploited the conditions to the full in a superb seven over spell to start the day's play.

Speaking on Saturday after the man had been slashed across the face, Detective Inspector Darren Young said: "The behaviour of those involved in this incident is nothing short of disgraceful and those involved can be certain we will be working to identify them".

Local police say they believe fans of Millwall and Everton were involved in fighting before the match, during which a man was slashed in the face.

Millwall was renowned for its struggle with hooliganism in the 1970s and '80s.

"Millwall Football Club is aware of, and extremely disappointed by, a video circulating online displaying alleged racist chanting during Saturday's victory over Everton", the club said.

Anti-discrimination charity Kick It Out also released a statement, saying: "The racist chanting heard from some Millwall supporters during yesterday's match is disgusting and typical of mass discriminatory chants that continue to go unpunished". "There is no reason why a footballing environment should be the exception to this rule", Kick It Out said of the situation.

Murray Wallace's last-gasp victor sealed a dramatic 3-2 victory for Millwall over Premier League side Everton, securing a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup for Neil Harris' men.
