Absolutely true isca.No no, Pate said he did well. Must be booing someone else.
I second (or third) that. It was not a penalty. The Newport player came flying in and dived over one of the many trailing limbs.Tough game well played by the lads. thought Richardson showed some naivety when chasing down the lose ball toward the end and could have tumbled over when challenged by the keeper, but, did well to try to make something from what appeared to be a lost cause. Ref was constantly conned by the Newport players, as for the pen decision I saw it as did Sea Grecian - that the Newport player deliberately took advantage of a "trailing leg" and should have been booked for diving.
Non the less a courageously hard-fought and well deserved point.
But it is that effective, though, Newport have scored less than a goal a game this season so it looks like teams are working out that if you stand up to them physically they may not have a plan b.There are lots of team like it because it’s effective at this level and tbf to Newport they’re one of the best. I noticed today though that , compared the last season, we didn’t fold or choke. Last year it looked like we were completely intimidated by them. Yes a Clive whitehead is def needed fo4 games like these
