HULL goalkeeper Nathan Baxter sensationally tackled his TEAM-MATE before gifting Swansea a goal during Saturday’s league game.
Baxter, 23, was largely to blame for Swansea’s second goal, which saw Luke Cundle flick the ball into an empty net from close range.
In the 64th minute, the Swans broke through to score when Oli Cooper came into the box.
The midfielder went down after touching Jacob Greaves but the referee didn’t award a penalty.
Instead, the ball landed at Hull defender Tobias Figueiredo, who was about to clear the danger when Baxter smacked him in the back.
Cundle was able to quickly lunge at the loose ball before fitting it into the bottom corner with ease.
Fans took to Twitter to react, writing, “What on earth?!”
Another added: “Ridiculous.”
A third said: “Sunday League isn’t that bad.”
While one happy Swansea fan joked: ‘We (the Swans) usually give away goals like this. It’s nice to be on the other side.”
