Bristol City vs Cardiff: Violence breaks out after Championship clash Latest News

The clip, which was posted on social media after the bitter rivals’ second tier clash, shows a group of men punching and kicking each other near Bristol’s Ashton Gate stadium.

One man can be seen lying on the floor as multiple attackers boot and punch him during the 36-second video.

Police eventually fly into the ruckus, with one officer seen holding a baton as he apprehends an attacker.

Another officer then appears on a horse, driving the crowd away barking furious instructions.

TROUBLE: Violence broke out after Saturday’s game between Bristol City and Cardiff

It is unclear whether the violence was between fans of the rival clubs, or in-fighting between Cardiff supporters – although Welsh accents can be heard throughout the video.

In a statement, Avon & Somerset Police told Daily Star Online: “Three arrests were made on the day – one for someone being drunk and disorderly and two for public order offences – following minor disorder involving small sections of both groups of fans.

“Further investigation will be carried out and CCTV studied, which may results in further arrests.

“Where we are able to show individuals have been responsible for football-related anti-social behaviour or violence, we will pursue football banning orders.

GRIPPED: Police confirmed three arrests were made on Saturday

“The Bristol City v Cardiff City game was graded as a risk game and while the majority of fans of both clubs were well-behaved there was a small minority intent on causing problems.

“We dealt with three small pockets of disorder involving supporters of both clubs.”

Victory for Bristol provided them a third consecutive Championship victory as they remain fourth in the table five points behind leaders Wolves.

Robins boss Lee Johnson said: “That’s nine points in a week, which included away games at Sunderland and Fulham.

“After those matches to go 12 rounds with a very strong Cardiff side and come out on top showed fantastic commitment and energy levels.

“I am beaming with pride over the efforts of my players. We are still unfancied by a lot of people in the Championship this season, but we keep surprising them.”
