Swansea are set to launch an investigation after their goalless draw with Reading was marred by booing and jeering outside the Liberty Stadium as both teams took the knee before kick-off.

The west Walians will aim to get to the bottom of the issue after it happened for their second successive home game.

On the field Steve Cooper's Championship promotion hopefuls were left frustrated by a goalless stalemate as Royals goalkeeper Rafael Cabral produced a series of stunning saves.

But the big talking point came before a ball was kicked.

As both sides took the knee before kick-off in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, a loud series of horns and booing noises was heard from a group gathered outside the ground. It is unclear who the group were or what their motives were.

Cooper said: "I heard some noises but I couldn't tell what it was. Let's find out and the reasons behind it.

"In terms of taking the knee we are a club which has continued to commit to it."

Swansea will now look into ensuring the incident does not happen for a third time when they host Watford on Saturday.

Cooper's men were playing their first game on the new Liberty pitch. The old one had been ripped up before Christmas after it deteriorated badly.

Swansea had to settle for a point as they missed out on moving back into second.
