The new owner of Plymouth Argyle says he is "truly sorry" some fans missed the first part of the weekend's Devon derby with Torquay.
James Brent says around five thousand supporters turned up at Home Park, more than when they played in the Championship.
He is promising to review arrangements that means some were stuck outside as the match started.
In a statement he said, "The support from the Green Army on Monday was absolutely extraordinary and this passion was the initial reason for my involvement with our club.
"The 'Pay on the Day' attendance exceeded 5,000 - higher than similar attendances when Argyle were playing at the top end of the Championship.
"While we were prepared for a good turn-out, we were not sufficiently prepared for support at this level.
"We are very conscious that our supporters are customers, as well as fans.
"We are desperately keen to provide all our supporters and, indeed, visitors with a high quality experience in the Theatre of the Greens.
"While our staff endeavoured to get everyone seated before the start of the game, for some, we did not succeed and for that I am truly sorry.
"We cannot guarantee perfection, but we can give you our assurance that we are reviewing the events of yesterday, and the constructive comments that have been made, and we will do better next time.
"Again, my thanks for your support."
