Alex Bruce's booking sparked a melee around referee Jonathan Moss at Leicester

Hull City have been fined £30,000 for failing to control their players during their draw with Leicester City.

The Tigers appealed against the charge but an independent commission deemed their behaviour worthy of punishment.

The fine relates to an incident in the 68th minute after Hull defender Alex Bruce was booked following a heavy challenge on Leicester's Riyad Mahrez.

Bruce appeared to play the ball but players from both sides crowded around referee Jonathan Moss.

Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone was also sent off in the Premier League game - which ended 1-1 - after being shown two yellow cards.

After the match Tigers manager Steve Bruce said: "There wasn't a nasty challenge in the game, yet we've had five yellow cards and a sending off. I never saw that coming."
