Bournemouth (A) – Verdict

We travelled 360 miles there and back to witness a pantomime referee in Roger East who was a few weeks early for Red Nose Day.

Three penalties awarded, all of them wrongly on first view whilst the most blatant handball was somehow missed. He then gave a yellow card for an elbow to the face and continued to make mistake after mistake.

The only fair score with Mr East’s comedy display to the fore was a draw, something we would probably have settled for at 7.30am on Saturday morning as the coaches began to roll.

Another battling display coming from 1-0 down again in a game littered with misplaced or over-hit passes.

Up to the sacred 40-point mark and all off to Huddersfield on Tuesday, ay we? Good luck to whoever ends up with Mr East next.
