LUFC Warnock critical of referee

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock was left disappointed with referee Nigel Miller after he failed to award Leeds a penalty in the early minutes of the game in the 1-0 home defeat to top of the table Southampton.

Robert Snodgrass saw his goal bound effort in the opening minutes of the game kept out by the raised arm of Southampton defender Jose Fonte, much to the disgust of Warnock.
.
Speaking on Sky Sports after the game, Warnock said, "I expect a referee and a linesman to see the most blatant handball you will ever see, it is not even close and the score was still 0-0 then.

"You don`t get those decisions when you are not at the top but you do when you are top of the league.

"The referee was stood there in a good position. It wasn`t as if the players hands were down by his side, he blatantly handballed it.

"You expect referees to see it and he had an indifferent night.

"If I was them I would buy some lottery tickets tonight."


The decision was just the start of a frustrating evening for Leeds who dominated against the league leaders.

An inspired display by Kelvin Davis in the Southampton goal frustrated Leeds all evening.

Southampton won the game thanks to a Rickie Lambert volley on 16 minutes, which was their only effort on goal for the first hour of the game.

Don't worry it gets worse. We have Stuart Attwell on Tuesday.

The bloke was a joke throughout. I noticed him early on blowing hard. An unfit referee, struggling to keep up with the game. No wonder he got so much wrong. Saying that he was two yards away from the penalty incident.
