Was it a handball? under today’s rules yes as his arm was away from his body.
Was it a foul on Smith on the edge of the box ? clearly yes but not given then the Ref gives an identical tackle on a Pompey player against us.
Was it a straight red ? no a yellow at its worse. New rules now state that anyone encroaching into the refs face should be booked.
4 Pompey players harassed the ref till he decided on a red. At least 2 of them should have been given a yellow.
There was lots of free kicks missed on both sides but mainly against us.
This Ref should be made to hang his boots up for a month that display was shockingly bad. Biased beyond belief, I’d go as far as saying bent
