WEST Ham captain Scott Parker will not be taking further action over an incident in which he was allegedly attacked after Latics’ crucial victory against the Hammers.

The incident happened during a pitch invasion by jubilant home fans on Sunday. Wigan fans who saw the attack say it was nothing more than a scuffle between the player and a Latics fan who accidentally ran into him. One fan said: “From where I was it looked like the fan was rushing onto the pitch and collided with the player.”

A Latics spokesman said: “The West Ham players were advised to leave the pitch. Many of them chose instead to go to see their own fans. There was a push, more than a punch. Our head steward asked Scott Parker if he wanted to pursue the matter but he decided not to.”
