The couple came together in the first half of the visitors’ 3-2 win at Deepdale, the former Arsenal full-back, catching PNE’s Fisher in the chest with a flailing arm. It was an incident that anger at the North End players, the referee Tony Harrington is drawing a yellow card. “I did not see it first, to be honest,” said Neil. “I turned around to get the ball, but I could tell the fans’ reaction immediately that something had happened.” I’ve seen it back and it’s a clear red card. He bashes him with his forearm just above the chest. “The fourth official told me that it depends on where you’re hurt, as I find staggering

“He says if you get hit in the face, it’s a red card and if you’re not hit in the face, it’s not considered violent behavior.” I do not know if the rules have changed, but that’s not my interpretation of them. Neil also thought that his side could have had a penalty in 2-1, Alan Browne went down under the challenge of Kyle Bartley after signing in.”

“Alan’s the not right side of the lad and is clean through, and according to my knowledge and my observation while watching the match, I thought the officials made the wrong decision about it, “said the PNE chief. “Even the free kick to the third goal, you could tell our player’s reaction that they thought it was really soft and it ends on the network and it will be the crucial moment that will win them the game.”

The crowd too had the similar reaction and as of the person watching the match said, “The decision was not fair.”
