Hull City have announced their intention to appeal against a Football Association charge of failing to control their players during the goalless draw at Leicester on March 14.

The charge arises from a 68th-minute incident in which Tigers players surrounded referee Jonathan Moss after Alex Bruce was booked for his challenge on Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez.

Hull manager Steve Bruce had declared his club would “vigorously defend” the charge, adding: “The frustration was that he (Mahrez) was blatantly trying to get somebody sent off.

“We surrounded the referee because it was a perfectly fair challenge”.
