He received an average rating of 2.14 following the 3-1 defeat away at Wycombe Wanderers earlier on this season. Some of the comments can be found below:

kettrin imp: “Very very poor. Definite homer, not helped by a linesman who doesn’t know the offside rule. 2/10.”

sedgleyimp: “1/10

His performance is NOT the reason we lost today but the absolutely shocking decision to not stop play just before our goal was beyond belief. 2 potential serious head injuries ignored resulting in their player lying prostrate on the ground for 10 minutes whilst he’s treated. You could see from that moment that he knew he had made a horrendous mistake and from that moment he was no longer in control of the game as his subsequent decisions were tainted by that incident he got horribly wrong”

berksimps: “3.0

He wasn’t that bad during the first hour. We tactically fouled as much as they did. E.g. Shacks near the halfway line holding on, to stop their forward getting the run on him.

Their guys play-acting early on probably influenced his woeful indecision for the head injury. After that, having seen the severity of the injury he was shocked and in meltdown. Virtually everything decision wise went for them after that. Not right, but we might have expected other refs to do likewise. It was like balancing up a dubious penalty decision but on a grand scale.

We didn’t lose the game because of the ref though. We lost it through some very basic defensive lapses and a failure to compete in midfield.”
