Bolton striker Marvin Sordell has claimed he and several of his team-mates were racially abused by Millwall fans during his side’s 2-1 defeat at the Den.

The 21-year-old said on Twitter that he had reported the incident and revealed that midfielders Lee Chung-yong and Darren Pratley, plus fellow forward Benik Afobe, had also been subjected to racist taunts by some home supporters.

Sordell said on Twitter: “Putting the match aside, its 2012 in england and people are still shouting racial abuse at a football game!? #Shocking.”

He added: “Chungy, Pratts, Benik and I had all sorts of things said to us. The police were standing yards away and did nothing...”

Sordell also received abusive responses to his allegations on Twitter.

He added: “Funniest thing is if had come on and scored and gave them some back, I would be the one who got fined.”
