Newcastle have offered their full support to officers attempting to identify the man having described his actions as "clearly inappropriate".

The incident happened deep into extra-time after Frenchman Saint-Maximin had come off the bench to fire the Premier League side to victory over their League One opponents, who had scored twice inside the final six minutes of normal time to cancel out a 2-0 deficit.
