I’ve long felt the game would benefit from a sin bin category of offence. A ten minute ban would be used to penalise deliberate fouls made to prevent a breakaway. These sorts of fouls are so common and the offender gets away with ‘taking a yellow’ for stopping a promising attack.
The ref got them both right, the ‘tackle” from behind on Horgan is not a red...but it should be! No attempt to play the ball.
I also felt the game flowed quite well with very little time added on considering. Lee Mason was waving away a lot of things that would have been whistled down in Peterborough's league.
