Hull City fans have been video recorded getting themselves in a punch-up with Sheffield United supporters in the stadium’s away end.
Two goals from John Egan and one from Billy Sharp helped the Blades to victory on Saturday lunchtime, however it was marred by what took place in the stands.
Not only did fists get thrown between the two sets of fans, but a Sheffield United fan was caught live on Sky Sports making the slit throat gesture to those in the opposite end.

As can be seen in the footage below, stewards tried their hardest to calm down the situation, fans lashed out by kicking, while others threw bottles and of course, countless of people just stood and filmed it.
An orange flare was then set off towards the top of the stand, causing extra security to be called in to deal with the matter.
The brawling played out for a number of minutes, before everyone was able to turn their attention to the game again and the culprits were taken away.

Club legend Billy Sharp scored and missed a penalty on his 300th appearance for the Blades as a struggling Hull were easily beaten at the MKM Stadium.
The 35 year old finished off a lovely move by heading in Morgan Gibbs-White’s perfect right-wing cross to put the away side in front.
Although Hull keeper Matt Ingram superbly saved Sharp’s spot-kick just before half time, the visitors took control after the break.
Two John Egan headers, coming from corners, prevented any hope of Hull sparking a comeback despite Keane Lewis-Potter’s consolation, their first goal in more than 10 hours.
The win extends Slavisa Jokanovic’s side’s unbeaten run to five games, while the Tigers slipped into the relegation zone.
Hull City manager Grant McCann told BBC Humberside:
“I’m disappointed – we came up against a very good side who will only get better and better but we can’t keep coming in and saying we had good spells and our play was good, we need to be better it’s as simple as that.
“Billy Sharp’s got a hold of Mallik and let Egan run round the back. It’s good play from them but disappointing from us. We understand there are not many penalties or free-kicks given for that and we have to get better – we can’t let anybody block us.
“We’re not at the level yet and it’s showing in results – we need to start winning games and we’ll continue to work hard at doing that.”
Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp told BBC Radio Sheffield:
“I’m delighted to get on the score sheet because I feel like I’ve been playing well. It was a great ball from Morgan and I couldn’t really miss.
“It was disappointing to miss the penalty but it hasn’t cost us, we got the three points.
“The manager wants us to believe in ourselves and we’re starting to do that now. He’s said our set-pieces haven’t been good enough so he’ll be delighted with that.”

Fans reacted as Hull fans get in a punch-up with Sheffield United supporters in the away end…
@Matty2503_YT: Embarrassing blunts banged by 1 lad 🤣🤦♂️
@saxilbyblade: Flare from the Hull fans @ 3-0 down
@willby_brandon: Your fans literally started throwing chairs and bottles at us when you score your second embarrassing and I’m being told that you lot when into a pub before game broke windows and started fighting.
@Neilcolclough: Bell ends the lot of em
@FarnettBrian: Good job I didn’t go today I’d have chinned everyone. Including all the players
@jimbo093: Where’s that one bloke who casually walked over to fight the full away end? haha everyone else pretending to be stuck behind netting and pillars.
@DJ_LU10: I’m not gonna say we didn’t have a part to play but the whole back section of hull fans didn’t watch a single minute of the game. Literally stood there jeering United fans. They threw 3 bottles across which started the throwing and the flare came across into the away stand…
@Piddie74: Both sets of fans involved are bell ends. We were in the middle of the Blades end and watched the f*ck wits pretending to try and get at each other. The flare was brighter than all of them involved.
@TylerDu19660464: Hull trying to be hard and getting chinned again. Same shit, different year.
@andymorton81: Jesus wept. Blades virgins meet the Tigers virgins. Grow up you stupid fuckers. It’s a football match.
@maxwell787: Kid at the back going for it
@swfcdan1867: That one Hull fan on his own, what a fucking lad!
@DrinkallNeil: Chav corner lives on
