Midfielder Chris Brunt may well have expected West Brom fans to be less than happy with his side’s 3-1 FA Cup defeat at the hands of Reading. However, he won’t have expected to have found himself on the receiving end of a coin thrown by a Baggies’ fan.
The incident happened after the game at the Madejski stadium, when Brunt went over to applaud the away end. After being struck by what appeared to be a 50p coin, the Northern Ireland international was understandably shocked and remonstrated with the West Brom fans.
Here’s the video of the incident…

The coin hit Brunt just below the eye so he was very lucky not to endure a far more serious injury. Let’s hope the police find out who the utter gobshite was!
