West Brom fans have voiced their displeasure at having to pay £10 to watch their side face Brentford in the EFL Cup on Tuesday. 

The Baggies host the Bees tomorrow evening looking to build on their first round victory over Harrogate Town last week.

But with supporters still not allowed inside The Hawthorns because of restrictions designed to limit the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, us fans are fairly short on options when it comes to following the action.

Thankfully, there will be a stream available for the game, with the club announcing on Monday that there will be opportunity to purchase a virtual ticket to watch along at home.

That being said, a lot of supporters are less than happy about the cost.

A stream will cost £10 which, at first glance, may not seem overly excessive.

But when you consider that price in the context of how much it would usually cost, it seems a little unfair.

For one thing, an early round cup match like this could feasibly have been priced at as little as £5 for entry, were we actually allowed to attend the game.

Likewise, a subscription to the entirety of Sky Sports is only four times more than that for a full month.

Granted, not every West Brom game is broadcast live on television, but it does put into perspective how over the top this is.

It should be pointed out that chances are the club have had nothing to deciding on the cost of the stream, but the fact remains that a lot of supporters are going to be turned off by such an unnecessarily hefty price tag.

Here are some of the best tweets from West Brom fans:
