'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Absolutely Useless

Not for the first time recently (or second time for that matter!) Graham Kavanagh feels hard done by following a refereeing decision.

Well, that should read a "lack of" refereeing decision....

Swindon eventually ran out 3-1 winners against Carlisle on Saturday, but at 2-1 we appeared to have been denied a cast iron penalty.

David Amoo looked to be tripped by Yaser Kasim, but referee Steve Bratt wasn't having any of it.

He has felt the full force of Kavanagh's rage following this, he said: 'The referee was absolutely useless and Mark Cooper agreed the same.

'I think the incident involving Amoo should have been a penalty and I think the referee has just made an excuse.

'Amoo was clipped, he was stopped from taking a touch of the ball. If he did take a touch of the ball it would have taken him clean through on the goalkeeper, but he's been wiped out.

'Some of the decisions he made for and against us were absolutely abysmal but the referee tells me he slipped over and made a meal out of it so it's very frustrating.'

Massimo Luongo had given Swindon the lead, the post denied us before Sean O'Hanlon did head us level. Alex Pritchard scored a fine free kick (which was rightly praised by Kav) then came the penalty incident on 83-minutes....

Dany N'Guessan made the most of that soon after.

As disappointed as the boss was with the referee, and his "absolutely useless" thoughts could land him in hot water, he did admit that the better side did win and wasn't happy that we didn't offer more of a threat going forward.
