Preston North End head coach Frankie McAvoy felt Jordan Hugill got away with one for his early foul on Patrick Bauer in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Deepdale.
The Lilywhites defender was led on the floor with blood gushing out of his nose early on, after an aerial duel with the Albion and former PNE striker.
Bauer received treatment from the physio and did not look in a good way, but managed to get back on his feet and play the 90 minutes.
He put in a warrior-like performance, dealing well with the threat of West Brom's front line.
And while McAvoy post-match did not want to say the former Lilywhite should've been given his marching orders, he was not impressed one bit.

"There were a couple of incidents I was disappointed with, particularly the Pat one," said McAvoy. "I am not going to say that anyone deserves a red card, it is not in my nature to do that.
"But it looked to me like Jordan jumped and caught him with the elbow - nothing happens and we got Sepp (van den Berg) booked in the first couple of minutes.
"It is a tough one, Pat is fine now, the doctors worked with him at half-time and we thought he might have to be taken off.
"But thankfully that wasn't the case, there was a lot of blood lost - the incident is the incident but there was one before it that Jordan (Hugill) didn't get penalised for against Jordan (Storey).
"And once you get away with one, you might think you can get away with a second one and he did.
"It isn't half (a mess), his nose is absolutely cut on both sides so he will have a sore face and a couple of black eyes for a wee bit I think.
"He is a big, physical striker isn't he? Jordan is not going to intentionally split somebody, he is not that type which we all know.
"But sometimes these incidents happen and at the time, I was 50 yards away but it felt like an innocuous one.
"And then when I saw it back I went 'wow', but it happens."
