Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to question after a steward was injured at Preston North End's League Cup win over Blackpool.
About 200 Preston fans ran on the pitch and the ground was damaged after the game on 5 August.
During the disturbance a steward was pushed in front of a police horse. He was taken to hospital with a shoulder injury.
To date, 20 people have been arrested with disorder offences, police said.
Det Insp Paddy O'Neil said, "Over the past few weeks we have been studying CCTV footage and we are keen to trace this man in relation to the assault on the steward.
"We believe the man ran on to the pitch from the Sir Tom Finney stand.
"He is a stocky white male, with a shaven or bald head, and was wearing jeans and a distinctive dark green jacket with a hood."
