Police are looking for a group of teenagers caught up in a disturbance whilst heading towards the Southend United v AFC Wimbledon game last week.
The incident took place on a train on Tuesday, 12 March around 6.20pm.
Sergeant Rocky Jassel, based at BTP's Southend office, said: "A group of around seven men boarded a Southend-bound train at Liverpool Street station.
"As the train left Stratford station, the group became considerably disruptive, shouting loud and abusive chants to other passengers on board."
The group then turned on a pregnant lady as she left a train at Billericay, although she wasn't hurt, she was shoved off the train.
Sgt. Jassel said: "This must have been a very frightening experience for those on board the train and simply trying to make their way home from work."
The men are described as all white, aged between 15 and 19-years-old. One of the men officers are keen to speak to was described as of heavy build with strawberry blonde hair.
