Troubled flared at the first derby match for more than eight years
Ben - not his real name - has been a Plymouth Argyle season ticket holder for 10 years and has been attending matches since the 1970s.
He was at the Plymouth-Exeter derby at the city's Home Park stadium on Tuesday 8 November 2010.
He decided to leave his two young sons at home - anticipating the violence which occurred.
Here he outlines his reasons for that decision and voices his disgust at the trouble which ensued.
Having attended football matches for the best part of 30 years I am quite experienced in knowing what to do.
I know what to avoid, which parts of the ground not to sit in, that kind of thing.
So being the first local derby for years, it was quite conceivable to me that there was going to be trouble in and outside the ground.
Both of my young sons, who usually go to all games, weren't allowed to go and I'm glad I made that decision.
Although I sit far away from any potential trouble, I don't want my kids watching so-called supporters fighting with police, stewards, each other, whoever is willing.
I wouldn't allow them to watch violent films or programmes at home and I'm not going to knowingly take them to watch two ours of that outside of the home.
When I first entered the ground it was blatantly obvious what was going to happen.
On Saturday there were approximately 5,000 fans present, (and boy did you need to be a fan to attend that, one of the worse performances from an Argyle team I have had the displeasure of watching).
Last night 10,000 turned up, to be expected, it's a local derby but when you look at the spread of fans throughout the ground it was obvious why a few thousand had come.
The end closest to the Exeter fans, namely block 16 of the Lyndhurst, was heaving.
People were stood in the concourse four-deep, with a small barrier of police and stewards between them, the pitch and the away fans.
The further from that area you went, the more space in the terraces.
Throughout the second half in particular, scuffles broke out between the fans and security and at some points it looked as though it would get out of hand.
I understand one steward was particularly badly hurt.
As we all know, Exeter scored in the last minute and then things really turned sour.
All I could see from my seat were fists flying as so-called supporters and security just stood toe-to-toe battling it out.
I could see it clearly and so I can only assume so did everyone else in the ground.
Why on earth would I want an 11 and 8-year-old to experience that?
Further to that, when at football matches my sons will often ask me what the fans are singing, and I try to quickly clean up the lyrics and translate.
Last night, the songs were loud and clear, with more fans being present.
I don't want my children to hear some of the particularly vicious and disgusting stuff that was being sung.
It was despicable and way beyond my comprehension and not to be repeated.
If you were there you know what I am talking about.
My kids will hear such stuff soon enough, I don't want to be responsible for exposing them to it though.
I won't be letting them go to the game in December either, for all of the above reasons.
