Hull City booed by own fans after Swansea defeat

Published 1 Comments

Hull's fans' frustration reached boiling point on Saturday afternoon when they were booed off the pitch after registering their eighth defeat of the season against Swansea City.

The only goal that separated the two sides was a deflected Jonjo Shelvey effort which was claimed by Ki Sung-Yueng, but the fixture could have seen plenty more goals.


Shelvey was unlucky to have a goal of his own moments later when a strike from a similar position rattled the post. But the Tigers were next to hit the woodwork when Andy Robertson's fizzer scraped the bar from a tight angle before Nikica Jelavic had a goal ruled out for offside.

The second half was a total banana skin for Steve Bruce's side with wasteful passes and continuous mistakes across the field. In truth, the afternoon could have been a whole lot worse for Hull when Bafetimbi Gomis saw his audacious volley fly wide of the top corner before a looping header squirmed onto the post.


Wilfried Bony also came close towards the closing stages but James Chester's courageous block diverted the ball past the post narrowly. As the game drew to a close, the hosts became more and more desperate. Yannick Sagbo's hopeful drop to the ground in the penalty area subsequent to an alleged shirt pull resulted in none other than a frown from referee Mark Clattenburg.

Steve Bruce slammed his players in a similar fashion to the way he did after the embarrassing Burnley defeat in November by admitting "we got what we deserved today - and that was absolutely nothing."


On the other hand, Garry Monk was thoroughly delighted with his side's performance and credited his players for showing "great spirit to hold onto a tight lead".

Upon the final whistle, a bellow of boos could be heard around the KC Stadium as Hull City's damaging form worsened. Steve Bruce's side lie in 19th position with just two wins in seventeen games; their previous triumph coming many moons ago on October 4.

"We're going through a hard time at the moment. We are going to Sunderland hoping to win on Boxing Day and if we fail to take all three points from that, then the question of our Premier League status being maintained next season has to be asked" described Bruce.
