Sheff Utd fans: Hang your heads in shame
Barnsley striker Iain Hume has suffered a fractured skull and internal bleeding after a challenge by Chris Morgan during Saturday's clash with Sheff Utd.
In the full-blooded affair, after two players were sent off by Andy D'Urso, the referee only showed Morgan a yellow card for leading with his elbows and hammering into the side of Iain Hume during an aerial challenge.
Although I'm sure Chris Morgan will be horrified to hear the news about Hume, when Iain was down injured, chants of ''cheat'' from the Sheff Utd fans in the West Stand were hurled towards the Canadian international.
Hume has been in intensive care over the weekend.
Manager Simon Davey told of his disgust with the lack of protection Hume was given by referee Andy D'Urso:
From the club's official website:
'It's beggars belief that you send a manager to the stand when referee's assistants make decisions 70 yards down the pitch; yet a challenge like this seen from 15 yards away, which ends with Iain suffering a fractured skull, goes virtually unpunished.'
