sedgleyimp: “Yeah 6 is right. Didn’t make any howlers and you didn’t really notice him despite his bright red top.

A little whistle happy though as he didn’t allow any advantages, though that did work in our favour when Macclesfield were in a really good attacking position when he brought it back for a free-kick to them.”

PerthImp: “Agree 6.5/10. Thought he got all the main things right and wasn’t too fussy. The only thing he was fussy about was using his spray! Was so keen to get it on the right spot he was actually trying to spray the spot while Toffolo was lying prostrate on the ground injured! Bit bizarre.”

plumbob: “6.5 for me. Thought he did alright. As already said, sometimes didn’t play advantage when he could have. Thought maybe he could have booked a couple more, but that is just the inconsistency you generally see between different referees.”
