Last reffed us when we beat Leicester at home 1-0, when Kaspar threw it into the back of the net for us.

I have a good feeling about tomorrow......

It's always easy to compliment the ref when we have had a good win, but I thought he was excellent today.

He was always up with play and got all the major decisions right. 
5/5 from me.

There were no great controversies today with the officials.  A few times the west stand lino got some abuse for supposedly getting offsides wrong,but I thought most were correct.

He did very well.  only 2 things he could have done differently for me. 

1) Tyson and Forrester were getting pushed off the ball a lot in that first half, and he rightly gave free kicks.  But that was no deterrent for those Yeovil players doing it again next time.  It needed a card showing for persistent fouling.

2) In the second half when Bennett was fouled on the corner of the box after slipping the ball through to Main, should the ref not have played the advantage?

Churlish points I suppose.  Generally he handled the game well.

3 at best.

Not stopping the constant pulling of players from both teams

Failed to spot their player holding our defender so the man he was marking for the corner could break away and go for a clear shot.

... And the balls up of allowing is a quick free kick - to which we were clear on goal - was inexplainable.


Also, why is it we always get the shit Lino's on the west stand?

That was simple,  mate. We stole about 7 yards and took it from the wrong place. He had no option but to call it back.

I agree - it was frustrating that the quick free kick wasn't allowed, but the ref got it right.  To have allowed it from that position would have been too unfair an advantage to Rovers.

My only criticisms are that he should have pulled Yeovil up far earlier for their shirt pulling and jumping at the man rather than the ball far earlier.
The west stand Lino looked clueless for much of the game and gave him little help.

A decent performance from the ref for a change, the one thing he could have picked up on was to explain the offside rule to the west stand lino at half time, the call is from when the ball is played, not when you recieve it! There was one in the first half when Tyson got away, he was at least 3 yards onside when the ball was played!

I don't know if the chap on the West was Robert Massey-Ellis but if so he needs some advice from his other half, Sian, who is one of the better linos on the Premier League.

He was poor.  Mind, I think I can count good west stand linos on one hand over the past couple of seasons
