The Football Association has announced it is investigating the incident in which an object was thrown from the crowd at Chris Brunt after today’s FA Cup tie between Reading and West Brom.
The Baggies lost 3-1 and after the game Northern Ireland star Brunt believed a coin had been thrown at him by the fans and struck him in the face.
He said: “I was walking towards our supporters at the end, and they thought it was okay to throw a coin at their own players. I’m disgusted.
“If they want to come forward and say they don’t like what they’ve seen then that’s fine. Fans are frustrated we were 1-0 up and lost.
“They paid a lot of money to come, but a small minority spoilt it. There were young kids there. I was absolutely disgusted and ashamed.”
