HULL goalkeeper Nathan Baxter sensationally tackled his TEAMMATE before gifting Swansea a goal during Saturday’s Championship clash.

Baxter, 23, was largely at fault for Swansea’s second goal which saw Luke Cundle slot the ball into the back of an empty net from close range.

In the 64th minute the Swans broke through on goal as Oli Cooper made his way into the box.

The midfielder went to ground after making contact with Jacob Greaves, but the referee did not award a penalty.

Instead the ball travelled through to Hull defender Tobias Figueiredo, who was about to clear the danger when Baxter clattered into the back of him.

Cundle was in position to quickly pounce onto the loose ball before passing it into the bottom corner with ease.

Fans took to Twitter to react, with one writing: “What in the world?!”

Another added: “Laughable.”

A third said: “Sunday league isn’t that bad.”

While a happy Swansea fan joked: “We (the Swans) normally give those sorta goals away. It’s nice to be on the other side of it.”
