Two charged over football rioting
Scales of justice
Two men have been charged with riotous behaviour following trouble at last month's Linfield/Glentoran football match at the Oval in east Belfast.

They are expected to appear at Belfast Magistrates Court on Friday.

Serious crowd trouble marred the top of the table Irish Premier League clash between the two Belfast teams.

Rival fans threw missiles and fought on the pitch. Nine police officers and two fans were injured. A 20-year-old man was convicted of rioting last week.
