Officials Snatch Game From Barnsley Again

Officials Snatch Game From Barnsley Again

In a game that couldn't quite get going, the Championship's newest referee made a name for himself by awarding Hull City a penalty in the 66th minute.

Peter Quinn, who was refereeing in League Two until today handed the game to Hull City on a plate by awarding them a spot kick and sending off Barnsley's Stephen Foster.

Barnsley and Hull City had barely exchanged any shots after an hour of play but the game burst into life in a fashion when Quinn's blunder rocked the equilibrium.

Just as the penalty awarded to Forest on New Years Day had done, another refereeing error cost the Reds points in the league.

It was a similar story at Upton Park last week in the F.A. Cup when Barnsley had two stonewall penalties denied by the officials.

Ahead of the game, Mark Robins had told Barnsley's official site that the Reds get 'one a week' against them, meaning incorrectly given, game changing decisions and he was proved correct as for the third week running, Barnsley got far less reward than they deserved for their efforts.

Jason Shackell was also sent off for lashing out on 90 minutes at a Hull City player, leaving the Reds completely without their central defenders.

It is almost enough to make one give up on the game altogether, when an expensive day out is absolutely ruined by one man, who comes in for no retribution at all.

I'd be very interested to hear Hull City supporters' views on the game.

Tigers should have had four with so many chances wasted. The Reds put the effort in though.

Steeley had yet another blinder, only to be let down by the rest of the team

Don't know what any Barnsley fan has to complain about regarding the penalty, the defender pulled the attacker back by the arm; simples. As for sending off, well thats a question of whether he was last man and the ref decided he was. As for fairness, look at the stats, and City should have had a penalty in the first half when McLean went down in the box for the ref to award a free kick outside. Barnsley had barely a shot on goal worth the name all game. No controversy here.

Solano, nasty challenge?? Your avin a larf!! It was obstruction at most, he couldn't get out of the way if he'd wanted; he is 37 after all!! Oh, and he had Hammill in his pocket all afternoon. Seen The Football League show yet? Deffo penalty and Shackell kicked out at Gerrard, deffo red. Stop whining, the better side won.

being 37 is not an excuse to get away with fouls.

Never said it was. What I did say was that it is an excuse for not being able to avoid a player running in to you.

fact is there was nothing in it until the red card. penalty yes, red card very harsh but the inbalance in fairness is something we're becoming quite accustomed to. for "better team" read 14 names not 11.

14 against 11? Yeah, there must be some reason why you lost other than being beaten by the better team. Obviously that's why we had 3 players booked to your 2, biased officials! Shakes head!!

I repeat, there was nothing in it until the sending off. Nailed on 0-0 draw until that point.
