It was disallowed for offside. The decision was wrong. No idea why it took so long to be made. Bowman have the lino stick for the rest of the game, hence he was booked.

In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
The Grecians could have been dead & buried under a 4 goal avalanche at HT..BUT they weren’t.Came out in the 2nd half fighting got the equaliser & then went on to take the lead or so we thought.

Officials should be strong enough not be pressured to reverse marginal decisions(I have seen a fb video & it was marginally onside)

Not a great overall performance admittedly,but for the officials inept decision we could have got a result from
the game.

How on earth was the Walsall left back not sent off for the lunge at Richardson ?

A great turnout of Grecians again.Maybe one day a large following will have something to celebrate.

I dont know what all the fuss is about regarding the disallowed goal. Its going to be annoying when all the players have accepted the situation and have lined up for the match to restart. That was very late for the offside to be applied, and I dont know whether the linesman or referee decided it didnt count. From the available footage, it does look like Bowman is a couple of feet offside when Williams struck that cross, theres no Walsall player keeping him (or two others for that matter) onside. It was a rotten way to get a goal chalked off, but the decision looks right, whoever applied it.

King Matt sounded frustrated in his interview but spoke a lot of sense. Matt and the players need our support now more than ever. COYR.
As much as you are right for the first time in a very very long time but Matt and the players need to earn that support by showing belief, drive and an actual want to get promoted.
