Trouble breaks out between Hull and Swansea fans with police officers taking action

Trouble breaks out between Hull and Swansea fans with police officers turning up and taking action to prevent the situation from worsening.

The two groups of supporters clashed outside the MKM Stadium with punches thrown as cops quickly tried to separate them both by closing a metal gate.

But in more footage that has arose online, it seems that there were a group that took to fight one another before running and again a gate was opened to let fans through before being closed.

The game itself saw Swansea City’s slim Championship playoff hopes dashed when they only managed to draw 1-1 with Hull City.

The Swans could only earned a point as Luke Cundle cancelled out Ben Cabango’s own goal.

A spell of pressure, however, led to Cundle scoring the opener just before the break, curling a perfect shot past Karl Darlow, and into the far post.

Cabango tried to clear the danger, and diverted the ball into the net at the post.

Despite their eight-game unbeaten streak, Russell Martin’s side can’t finish in the top six.

With only one match remaining, they are now 10th but still five points behind Millwall in sixth place. It’s also a mid-table finish for Hull.

Hull manager Liam Rosenior said: “It was an outstanding game of football between two very good footballing teams,” said Rosenior.

“Some wonderful passages of play from both teams and both goals came from that. I’m really pleased with that performance. We look organised and structured without the ball.

“They had a lot of possession without the ball but they didn’t create much, apart from what was a wonderful goal at their end.

“We looked a real threat when we had the ball; we looked incisive and played some wonderful one-touch football, which is what I want to see.

“Overall, I’m really pleased with the performance. You only get consistent results with consistent performances and I’m delighted with the players.

“That’s the football we’re trying to create.

“When I came in, we were a point outside relegation so I had to concentrate on our defensive organisation and structure.

“Now, we are building to something else – and that’s not the first time that’s happened; I can think of the goal at Sunderland, the chance at Sunderland, two chances at Blackburn, where we’ve played through 11 players on the pitch.

“I was delighted with that goal. I don’t normally celebrate goals as much as that.

“But as a coach, when you see what you believe in come off in front of your eyes – an unbelievable team goal – I couldn’t be prouder of the team.”

Swansea boss Russell Martin said: “I thought it was a good game between two really good teams who play in a really good style. I enjoyed the game,” he said.

“There was a lot of high quality play, I really like what Liam Rosenior is doing here, and they have had really good home form.

“They had one shot on target and we conceded from it, but I really liked the performance after the first 20 minutes when we just did not have enough energy or aggression out of possession.

“We tried to force things a bit and that was where their goal came from and we were not as front foot and aggressive as we needed to be.

“The goal we score is of really high quality, so we are really pleased with that. In the second half we were so dominant.

“They had a couple of moments on the counter but we dealt with it well defensively and just did not have that bit of spark or zip in that final action.

“We needed that to really open them up, but they defended in numbers with bodies behind the ball.

“That made it difficult for us, but I much preferred the second-half performance with the energy, intensity and control we had.

“Everyone was connected and the only disappointment is that we don’t quite win the game because of a lack of energy early on.

“But it is what it is, we are unbeaten in eight games with six wins and two draws, and I am so proud of the players for that after the run we had been on.

“They are disappointed in the dressing room, which I think tells you how far they have come as a group in terms of their mentality and what they expect from each other as a group.”
