The guy was terrible and I've never felt so angry about a ref.
Take nothing away from Hayes. They were probably the better side in the second half and Danny Potter had to make some excellent saves.
Their forward line was very lively and gave us problems all game. Our defence and midfield didn't seem at the races today.
In the end it was Lee Boylan who gave us the points turning in a great Junior McDougald pass for the first after a few minutes and then heading home a Dave Theobald flick on to put us 2-1 ahead.
In between Hayes scored an equaliser after a neat passing move and looked a decent outfit. They were unlucky not to get anything out of the game.
Nevertheless like the Hendon game, Canvey battled and ground out a result, a vast difference to previous seasons. Ollie Berquez battled hard and Duffers produced a tenacious performance.
Well done as well to the Yellow Army who made a lot of noise today. A bit quiet in the second half as Hayes piled on the pressure but great noise in the last five minutes or so.
So we go even further clear with Carshalton and Thurrock drawing and Grays losing.
Unfortunately what was a battling result was ruined by a terrible refereeing performance. I feel Hayes fans will probably agree with me.
