A police spokesman confirmed that some of the turnstiles were delayed in opening as a precaution because of a “security issue.”
But he added: “This has now been confirmed as a false alarm and all of the turnstiles are now open as normal and we do not anticipate it will cause any delay to the start time.”
The item is understood to have been found in the south stand which houses the away supporters.
The match is due to kick off at 3pm as planned.
