Perak football fans creating a cauldron of noise and light with their firecrackers and flares during their team's Malaysian Super League match against Singapore's LionsXII at the Perak Stadium in Ipoh on 14 February 2014. Yesterday, water cannons and tear gas had to be used to disperse disgruntled fans after Perak was defeated by Johor Darul Takzim 1-0 at the same stadium.

PETALING JAYA - The Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) had to use water cannons and tear gas to disperse disgruntled fans after Perak was defeated by Johor Darul Takzim 1-0 on Tuesday night at the Perak Stadium in Ipoh.

Some fans showed their displeasure towards the home team's management when they protested after the game.

The situation spiralled out of control and the FRU had to step in to disperse the crowd.

In a separate incident, a photographer was reported to have suffered injuries after some supporters threw stones during the match. Perak, who have never been relegated since Malaysia adopted a two-tier system, currently languish in last place with seven points after thirteen games.
