The League One clash between Charlton Athletic against Coventry City was delayed after fans protested by throwing plastic pigs onto the pitch.

The match did start on time but after a minute of play there was a deluge of plastic toys thrown onto the pitch by both sets of fans, who were showing their unhappiness at the owners of each respective club.

Charlton supporters have endured a lengthy feud with Roland Duchâtelet, while Coventry fans are unhappy with how their club is being run by Sisu.

Play restarted after a five minute delay as the pigs needed to be removed from the field of play.
