Hereford mugged after abysmal refereeing

The Hereford boss Russell Slade could hardly contain his anger and disgust as he saw his new-look side denied a much deserved win over Farsley Celtic at Edgar Street this afternoon.

The Bulls went in front thanks to a Taylor Allen goal in the 67th minute and seemingly doubled their lead with just nine minutes left on the clock when substitute Alex Bray outpaced the Celtic defence before calmly slotting home. However, after initially awarding the goal, booking the Farsley goalkeeper, and sending off the Celtic boss Adam Lakeland, referee Edward Duckworth consulted with the linesman (who had not originally flagged for an infringement with Reece Styche offside but not interfering with play) and changed his decision, chalking off the Bulls’ second goal.

To add insult Farsley then scored themselves in the 93rd minute with defender Jack Higgins appearing to be at least 3 yards offside.
