Chairman Ken Bates criticises the fans who were demonstrating before the game with Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Bates described the fans as mostly kids and they don`t have a clue what they are shouting about.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio , Bates said, 'I felt sorry for them. When you look at the evidence afterwards because we have it all on CCTV footage and various photographs, most of them are kids and they don`t know what they are shouting about.

'The few people I spoke to, hadn`t got a coherent complaint, there only complaint was we haven`t bought any players and that`s the managers decision and it`s down to him.'
