Definitely an action-packed 2nd half with a penalty decision more hotly disputed than any I've seen in more than 30 years watching football. At one point, I thought our boys were going to walk off and refuse to play the rest of the game. Very, very lucky only to get one sending off. However bad the decision - and it was appalling (but not as bad as the one the night before in the Birmingham/Cardiff game) - I think we need to watch our discipline a bit. Waldren and Wilson could easily have gone too. Fortuitously, the sending off worked to our advantage. Ashley's free kicks haven' t really been firing lately, and it would have been him taking the kick in the last min. As he'd left the field, it fell to Scannell (and the wind) to curl the ball in, to trigger a celebration that was, frankly, orgiastic. Scannell's now really playing well in pretty much every game, I think. Defence looked pretty solid even when we were down to 10 men.

I'd argue it was worse than the one in the Birmingham game. Replays showed a shot had hit a defender in the face but he was penalised for handball; but he did have his arm up next to his face, and without the benefit of replays it may have looked like a handball in real time. The one in our game never looked like a penalty at all, it's a perfectly clean tackle that fires the ball away for a corner. Goodness only knows what the linesman was thinking. (And if the Birmingham one had been handball the player should have been sent off as it was a shot on target - he wasn't even booked, so a major cock up all round by the referee.)

Indeed it was an awful decision. Im sure the clown that made it will be refreeing at the same level on Boxing Day. Everyone can make a mistake but this was a howler of epic proportion. I wasnt there but it would appear that we may have 'lost it' a bit after it was given and we do need to address that. Gavin and Junior have been sent to the stands on 4 or 5 occasions now and i think a stadium ban may be close

Gavin & Junior were both sent from the bench at Hornchurch when Shawn McCoulsky was red carded for an innocuous looking challenge last season. The previous season Gavin was sent form the bench at Lewes when the referee allowed them to take a goal kick as his assistant was attempting to supervise a Hamlet substitution; with our right back having made his way to the far touchline the ball went straight down the channel he'd just vacated allowing a forward a clear run at goal to score. Those were both infurating decisions. Gavin was also sent off at Canvey two seasons ago, but I wasn't there to see that one.

In our last two seasons in D1S we won the 'Respect' award for best disciplinary record towards match officials, and in the latter season we also won the overall 'Fair Play' award for least red/yellow cards overall. IN the 2012 season we only had one yellow card for dissent in 42 matches, which was in the penultimate game at home to Faversham when Ishmail Kamara understandably got annoyed with being repeatedly penalised for innocuous challenges on defenders or the keeper that would never have been given as penalties had they been made by defenders on him.

I think perhaps with the higher calibre of more experienced player we now have there's a tendency to be a bit more assertive and argumentative when really poor decisions go against us. But ultimately it doesn't do us any favours to argue to the point of being dismissed. When Carew was finally shown the red card on Saturday at least five minutes must have elapsed since the actual decision was made.

With the greatest of respect to Ashley he needs to be more professional than that, with his experience I would expect more. I am sure Gavin will have spoken to him but that may have been a difficult conversation based on Gavin's dismissal as well.
