Charlton and Coventry fans protest

Now both struggling in League One, Charlton Athletic and Coventry City are two former Premier League clubs who only appears to be heading in one direction under their current owners.

The two sets of fans today marched in unison against the way their clubs are being run ahead of their 3pm kick-off.

Pigs invade the pitch

In a very original protest, 3000 plastic pigs were thrown onto the pitch by both sets of fans immediately after kick-off.

The referee suspended the match for five minutes whilst stewards attempted to rid the playing field of the thousands of toy pigs.

Charlton fans are protesting about management of their club by owner Roland Duchâtelet whilst Coventry fans protest about the administration of theirs by the hedge funders Sisu.
