Shocking! Aston Villa Fan Needed Wound GLUED After West Brom Supporters Threw Seats During FA Cup Defeat
In the same match Villa fans invaded the pitch on several occasions, and the Baggies boss also believes that their fierce rivals didn’t steward the match properly.
These incidents marred what was an exciting match, ending 2-0 to the home side.
West Brom fans were seen breaking seats and throwing them on to the pitch , as well as at opposing supporters during the encounter. There are also reports that they were throwing coins and spitting at members of the crowd. It could end up that both clubs are fined for failing to control their support.
Pulis said of the seat throwing: “If that was the situation, they’ve got CCTV cameras up there, those supporters should never come into another football ground.”
He added on the pitch invasions: “This is just hopefully an isolated incident with mindless idiots. I don’t know what they are up to, to be honest with you. I’m old enough to have seen incidents happen like that. I don’t want to have a go and take anything away from what happened on the pitch and what happened in the game.
“If there’s one thing, Villa should look at the stewarding because with a game at this time of night, 5.30, you need to police it properly and I am sure Villa will look at it.”
