LUFC Grayson frustrated by referee

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson was left frustrated after a number of refereeing decisions went against his side.

Leeds were held to a goalless draw by Ipswich and referee Darren Deadman was at the centre of a number of controversial first half decisions that saw Grayson venting his anger at the official.

Speaking after the game, Grayson said, 'He (Darren Deadman) told me he felt his decisions were right and that I was wrong. Referees frustrate you at times. We had a really strong penalty claim.
'One of their lads had his hands down by his side but when Andy O'Brien had a shot the lad's arms came up to prevent the ball being goal bound.
'Refereeing is a difficult job but they have to be strong because it is a difficult place to referee at this club".

The penalty shout was one of many strange decisions by the official who also failed to notice a clear back pass, played an advantage to the Ipswich after his assistant raised his flag for offside and also booked Andy O`Brien for a trip when he was three yards behind the Ipswich player who fell over his own feet.

He thought he got all his decisions correct. I hope the assessor points his mistakes out to him.

its time these refs were made to explain all the decisions to a review panel with recorded footage and the whole thing published - they are after all professionals and the rest of us have to be accountable for what we do in our daily jobs
