Preston supporter describes the moment coach was attacked by Birmingham City ‘fan’
A Preston North End fan has described the moment that a Birmingham City fan smashed the window of their coach as it left the city.
The incident occurred minutes after Preston had beaten Blues at St Andrew’s by a solitary first half strike.
That defeat was Blues’ first in front of their own supporters after a frustrating second half that saw one goal ruled out and a strong penalty claim turned down.
But it appears a couple of home fans took their frustrations to far, vandalising a coach carrying away supporters back to Lancashire.
“They probably did it due to the fact they can’t take the loss on the chin,” he told LancsLive.
“He gave us some hand gestures and out of nowhere he threw a bottle and as soon as it hit he ran off.
“There were two of them, one had no shirt on and one had their new home kit on.”

The coach managed to leave the area, but had to quickly pull over as the window continued to break.
Reece explains: “We stopped for a good 15 minutes as the driver made a call to ask if it was safe to carry on driving when we pulled over.
“Glass was falling off the coach and onto the motorway while we drove so it wasn’t exactly ideal.”
“We had to pull over because the window was collapsing in. By the time we pulled up home, the window had fully gone.”
Thankfully no one was hurt in the incident.
