Swansea and Birmingham shared a 0-0 Championship draw that was overshadowed by players and coaches clashing at the Liberty Stadium.
Both sides clashed following the incident, but there were few clear-cut chances in either half as they had to settle for a point apiece.
At the other end Swansea goalkeeper Freddie Woodman got down low to deny Toral as Birmingham started to grow into the game.
It culminated just before the break when Tate put his hands on Toral on the touchline and a huge melee by the tunnel broke out.
After the break Gibbs-White raced in on goal but the Wolves loanee should have done better with his shot, which was tame and easily saved.
Ward had had a word with both benches before the restart, but the edge to the game did not disappear as Bidwell clattered Toral.
Etheridge did get a vital hand on a Grimes free-kick to stop Swansea opening the scoring and Dean had a header from a Birmingham corner saved.
Aitor Karanka's Blues realised the direct route was bringing them success and they swung in a series of set-pieces on Woodman which Swansea defender Joe Rodon did well to head clear.
Home head coach Steve Cooper introduced striker Liam Cullen for Lowe and Swansea did finish the stronger. Their best chance came via a long Connor Roberts throw with three minutes to go.
The ball found its way to centre-half Marc Guehi after Swansea had loaded the box. His shot looked destined for the bottom corner, but Etheridge marked his first Birmingham start with a smart save.
It was a crucial moment which denied Swansea all three points.
