Soccer Saturday favourite Abigail Davies has spoken out after a vile Twitter troll called her a "stupid s***".
The reporter, who also covers darts and snooker, took to social media on Saturday night after being sent abuse via direct message following the Championship match between Swansea City and Cardiff City. Swansea had beaten their fierce rivals in the South Wales derby thanks to a dramatic late winner from Ben Cabango in the ninth minute of stoppage time.
One Cardiff fan reacted to the result by targeting Davies on Twitter, with her screenshot showing the message they had sent her.

The message read: "You stupid b****. Don’t care your a jack but why rub it in a victory when you are meant to be independent.
"You’ll play mental health card when someone has a go at you. Hope you get sacked you stupid s***. Football games affect people’s mental health and I really hope that your mental health gets affected by your vile club’s relegation next season."
Alongside the screenshot, Davies also wrote: "Don't usually post stuff like this because I genuinely pity people who send abuse but this one has infuriated me.
"If you read this, please consider that messages like this can have a really negative impact on people struggling (thankfully I'm not). BE KIND, BE DECENT OR BE QUIET."
Davies, who is a Swansea fan, has been a regular fixture on Soccer Saturday this season and also contributes to coverage of darts and snooker as a reporter.
She had been caught out earlier on Saturday by one of the Soccer Saturday producers, who recorded her dancing and singing along to the music being played at the Cardiff City Stadium.
After sharing a clip of her singing along to the music, Davies promised there would be "more singing and dancing tonight" in celebration of Swansea's derby victory.
Russell Martin's side had seen their 2-0 lead cancelled out by Cardiff during a thrilling match before Cabango's stoppage time winner stole all three points. The result leaves Cardiff just one place above the relegation and only ahead of Huddersfield Town on goal difference.
