Swansea City fans react on Twitter to Stoke loss: 'Never a penalty'

Swansea Fans

Swansea fans, much like their manager, were unhappy with the first-half spot-kick awarded to Stoke during their 2-1 defeat at the Britannia Stadium.

Swansea City supporters were outraged after Michael Oliver awarded Stoke City a first-half penalty that got them back into a game they eventually won on Sunday.

Victor Moses was brought down in the box, although there were suggestions he dived, and Charlie Adam tucked home the ensuing spot-kick to equalise for the Potters after Wilfried Bony had given the Swans the lead - also from the spot.

And Jonathan Walters eventually won the game for the home side, leaving Swansea boss Garry Monk fuming after the game. He told Sky Sports: “The penalty against, for me, is a disgrace. It’s a disgraceful decision. Not in a million years a penalty.

“The problem now is that a lot of times in a season there are match-changing decisions going against us. I don’t see anything being done about it.

“I’ve spoken to the referee about it, I’ve spoken to the association about it, and I don’t hear anything from Mike Riley coming back to me at all, which I find poor leadership."

But Stoke boss Mark Hughes defended Victor Moses: “I heard him say that my player is a cheat, which is unacceptable in my view.

“He’s obviously upset. We have to come here 20 minutes after the game and speak about what’s gone on and sometimes you have to bite your tongue. Maybe that will come from experience.”

Here's what Swansea fans made of the controversial incident on Twitter...
