It’s amazing how the referee gets criticised when we lose and lauded when we win. I thought he was awful last night, giving free kicks and yellow cards for innocuous challenges. Not sure the players would score him highly.

I totally disagree. The referee was excellent, playing advantage where possible and running the game really well. I didnt see one debateable decision of note. Mr FBH, I think you'll be pretty much on your own with such scathing criticism from your living room.

Don't know what Pete's view will be, but another decent referee again tonight, IMO, so there are some decent lower league officials out there after all.
A very good call by the lino re Bowman’s goal. By the time Bowman received the ball he was miles clear of the last defender (and in real time therefore I thought he was offside). Flag stayed down but replays showed he was onside when the ball was played - a difficult but entirely correct call.
