A coach which had been full of Solihull Moors fans ‘gets bricked’ as it left Bolton Wanderers after Saturday afternoon’s FA Cup tie.
A video surfaced on Instagram with user @avfc_awayday_sparky captioning it “bricking our coach and run? 😂😂😂😂😂😂.
The clip zooms in on the smashed window, the coach at a standstill with cars going past, having left the game which ended in a 4-0 victory for the League One outfit.

Ian Evatt earned his first ever FA Cup managerial win as his side hammered Solihull Moors at the Toughsheet Community Stadium.
Goals from skipper Ricardo Santos, Paris Maghoma, Will Forrester and substitute Dion Charles, who also had a penalty saved, gave Evatt a much needed win having suffered five previous knockouts, with three with of those as manager of the Trotters.
National League side Solihull finished with 10 men having seen captain Jamey Osborne sent off in stoppage-time, and in truth never came close to being a threat for the home side.
From an Aaron Morley corner, Ricardo Almeida Santos met it well to head home, making it 1-0 on 39 minutes.
Then just under 10 minutes into the second half, Bodvarsson initially had his effort cleared off the line. The ball then fell to Edmond-Paris Maghoma and he cut inside brilliantly to beat his man, before firing past the keeper with a slight touch.
Again from another corner, William Forrester met it superbly to head home emphatically, 3-0 on 69 minutes.
Luke Matheson is brought down inside the area with 10 minutes remaining. Dion Charles stepped up to take it, but Simkin is down well to save it and turn the ball behind.
Then on 87 minutes, Dion reacted quickest inside the area to take it onto his left foot and made it four.
Bolton boss Ian Evatt said post-match: “It’s the first time my name’s been in the hat for six years, so I’m delighted with that!
“It’s great we’re through and after the draw we can park that and focus on Tuesday night and getting ready for another tough game at Shrewsbury.
“I was delighted with the attitude of the players and it was a good win for us to get ready for Tuesday night.
“Everybody stood up. We spoke in the week about these games being about attitude and the togetherness of the group; the mindset and mentality and they answered a lot of questions today, so I’m really pleased.
“I’ve said to the players we judge ourselves on our processes and performance levels but today it was about energy and attitude and they gave me that in abundance,” added Evatt.
“In the first half we had to be patient. We had some good chances that we didn’t take. Paris hit the bar and their keeper made some really good saves.
“Credit to Solihull they fought and grafted and made it difficult for us. But again it shows what a difference it can make by getting set-play goals.
“That helped us relax and in the second half I thought we played some really good stuff.
“If I’m being uber-critical we could and should have scored more. We missed a penalty, but we’ll back Dion to score those all day long and probably could and should have had two or three penalties more.
“But it was a really good performance against a Solihull side that didn’t make it easy for us. It’s important we wish them well. They are only part way through their journey. They are trying to do some really good things, and the right things, and it was great to see them come and have a go at us and I wish them well for the future.”
Solihull manager Andy Whing meanwhile said: “It was a tough day. They are a very good team by the way, I am really impressed with them.
“But if you look at it, two set-pieces and two free headers. A mistake for the third and even the fourth, we have let it bounce in the box. It is not like they constantly carved us open.
“I thought we were better than we have been in the last few weeks in terms of creating chances. We were brave on and off the ball, we were aggressive. We know we can be better on the ball.”
“I am gutted, it’s a game of football and you want to win. But they are some team with a fantastic manager and coaching staff. Hopefully, they go up this season.
“I keep saying to the players, we want to epitomise what Bolton are,” said Whing. “I think they are absolutely fantastic – the way they play, progress forwards and create chances.
“We want to get to that and we are nowhere near that, we are only scratching the surface. I am really excited about what we can do.
“We want to use days like today, it is a fantastic occasion, and we want to be doing this regularly. Hopefully, we can take bits from today and progress.”
