I heard that at half time the Dunstable players & officials where banging on the Referee's door accussing him of favouring Canvey and saying it was his fault that their player was injured. Is this true?
Is this normal practice as it could explain his second half performance?

As terrible as their player's injury was, he tripped over his own man and got his studs trapped into the ground as he fell resulting in a broken ankle.

As everyone in the ground easily saw, initially the Referee had given the free-kick to Canvey, however I believe the Referee had changed his mind due to the Assistant on the far-side having already raised his flag for offside.

There was nothing malicious about the tackle and rightfully the freekick should've been ours. Bet they're not complaing too much now.

i can see there point the linesman flag was up long before the tackle if the ref had seen this then there player would not of made the tackle and then not broke his leg! but we can not blame the ref for us not being able to make 5 yard passes or take our chances when 1-0 up!!

The Dunstable forum claims that their injured player hasn't broken any bones.

That's good news. As Matt says though, it was originally a foul to us until the ref saw the lino's flag up on the far side.
