David Holden said: Cavanagh was booked for an elbow which could easily have been a red.
I thought that was number 4 (Halford) although I could be wrong. Anyway, whoever it was got away with it, and it was just one of many poor decisions by the referee (e.g. clearly noticing that Prendergast (who, incidentally, didn't actually dive all that often... but still managed one or two
) had kicked the ball away, having a word with him, and then NOT booking him). However, we didn't do ourselves any favours in what was a disappointing second half display (Andy has already mentioned our defensive shortcomings - see today's NLP).
On a more positive note, I would have taken a draw at the start of the day, Essendoh just keeps on scoring those vital away goals, and Perkins' goal was indeed a contender for our goal of the season - although Miller's long-range screamer at Hereford is also in contention.
LDV qualification may now seemingly be in the bag, but let's hope we beat Shrewsbury (who will presumably have their minds on their forthcoming play-off matches) and Northwich to round off an undoubtedly successful season given our atrocious start.
