West Bromwich Albion have labelled the behaviour of a few of their travelling fans at the end of their FA Cup fifth round defeat at Reading as "sickening, barbaric and criminal."
West Brom player Chris Brunt was struck beneath his left eye by a coin at the end of their 3-1 loss.
The club says they are working with all relevant authorities to identify the offender.
We are working with all the relevant authorities to identify as quickly as possible the offender, who can expect the severest of sanctions by the Club for his actions.
West Brom's Chris Brunt was involved in a heated exchange with his own fans after appearing to be hit by an object following their 3-1 defeat at Reading.
Brunt had gone over to applaud the visiting fans following their FA Cup fifth round exit but went down clutching his face as he approached the away end.
The Northern Ireland international then confronted a group of Albion fans before being led away by captain Darren Fletcher.
In comments reported by BBC Sport, the 31-year-old 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."
West Brom have agreed a loan fee with QPR that would see Sandro move to the Hawthorns until the summer.
The Brazilian midfielder has been plagued by injuries since leaving Spurs for the Super Hoops in September 2014.
He is expected to undergo a medical in the West Midlands today and could be available for West Brom's Premier League fixture against Swansea on February 2nd.
