Hull City have been fined £30,000 after losing an FA appeal

Hull City have lost their appeal against a Football Association charge of failing to control their players in their Premier League game with Leicester City and have been fined £30,000.

The club were charged following an incident where Hull players surrounded referee Jonathan Moss after City defender Alex Bruce was booked for his challenge on Leicester's Riyad Mahrez on March 14.

A statement on the FA's website said: "Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, Hull City have been fined £30,000 after an FA player misconduct charge brought against the club was found proven.

"It was alleged that in or around the 68th minute of the game against Leicester City on 14 March 2015, Hull failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.

"The club denied the charge which was found proven by the Regulatory Commission."

Manager Steve Bruce had declared that the Tigers would "vigorously defend" the charge, saying "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."
