A football hooligan's been given his second football ban after being convicted of an attack at the Cardiff City stadium.

25 year old Ki Stone from Lydney punched and kicked a steward during the Bluebirds match in October.

The court heard the steward needed hospital treatment after the attack.

PC Chris Evans from the South Wales Police football unit said: "This was a cowardly attack on a man who was just doing his job.

"Had it not been for a police officer who put himself between Stone and the steward, the attack would have continued.

"There is absolutely no place for this stupidity in football.

"Anybody else who was behind the disorder at the stadium that day should be looking over their shoulder because a post-match inquiry is ongoing to identify others."

Stone has been given a five year football banning order and a suspended 16 week prison sentence.

He received his last ban in 2013 after being prosecuted for disorder during another Cardiff City march.
