In April, we sent all supporters who have a season ticket in the South Bank a survey asking them a number of questions about their match-day habits, including whether or not they would be in favour of barrier seating in the stand. An overwhelming majority of 97% told us they would be in favour of the change.” Related: Safe-standing under spotlight as the government looks for answers Related: West Brom v Aston Villa: Championship play-off semi-final, second leg – live!
