It’s a fair point. What’s more, in Maxted’s last 16 starts we lost just once.
Of course, there’s more to it than who’s between the sticks, but can’t help thinking if Maxted was fit he’d be starting.
From that angle the offside decision certainly looks dodgy. Crucial moment.1st half shocking. 2 half much better with City getting into the mix. Good equaliser and at that point there was only one team in it. City get a 2nd and very wrongly chalked out by some inept officials. Guy on end on right keeping Bowman in the middle onside when ball was kicked. Game changed after that as Walsall got a bit more luck from the guys in black and a 2nd wind. Definitely a game changer that wrong call. View attachment 1779
Look at post #263 then, which shows the rest of your defenders in the box, one of them clearly playing Ryan onside.
