Aston Villa fans were found trading punches with rivals from Cardiff City on the day of a vital Championship match, a court has heard.
Villa fans Mark Baker, Gary Tucker, and Brett Clarke all deny violent disorder and are on trial at Cardiff Crown Court.
Prosecutors said the minibus pulled up on Cornwall Street and the Aston Villa group got out and headed towards the pub.
The defendant accepts he was outside the pub when the Aston Villa group arrived and he accepts throwing a bottle but says he did it to keep the other group back.
Prosecutors said he saw a fellow Aston Villa fan attack a Bluebirds fan with a bottle but did not try to intervene, instead “Rubbing his hands together”.
