Notes

  • Peters GoalFrom a Ball corner Chivers heads on and Peters has a free header. Greig, who is on the near post, handles the ball on to the bar. A definate red card and penalty but the referee gives the goal anyway despite the ball never actually crossing the line.
  • Curran GoalBall's headed backpass plays Curran on side and as Banks comes to collect the ball, Curran swings a right boot at the ball but misses. The ball ends up in the net and SHOULD have been a Ball own goal but it is officially credited to Curran.
  • Goal DisallowedIn the second half Chivers has a potential hat-trick disallowed for offside.
