South Wales police were out in force yesterday in Swansea City’s 3-2 win over Leeds United .

In a fractious game Police officials have confirmed there have been 6 arrests made at the Liberty Stadium during the game 4 or which were Swansea supporters.

Fans have criticised the Police for their containment procedures at the end of the match as a cordon separated Swansea fans from their Leeds counterparts.

It left supporters climbing a grass bank to get onto the main road as the Police were not allowing any fans behind the North Stand.

Swansea fans were also involved in a incident where it is alleged that a small group of home supporters tried to board the Leeds United coach after the game.

There has been no offical confirmation of this event as yet.

Insp Colin Wooldridge did however confirm that damage had been caused by missiles thrown at the Leeds coaches.

He Told The Western Mail

‘A couple of the away coaches were also damaged near the ground after some had bottles and things thrown at them’



These actions are deplorable and do not reflect the true support that Swansea City get.
