LUFC McDermott - Referee decision was a joke

Leeds United boss Brian McDermott described the decision not to send off Blackpool defender Kirk Broadfoot as a joke following the 1-1 draw at Bloomfield Road.

Referee Scott Mathieson somehow deemed the foul by Broadfoot on Leeds striker Ross McCormack as a yellow card despite him being the last man and McDermott says he had to go.

Speaking on BBC Radio Leeds, McDermott said, "It was a joke; he has got to send the guy off.

"Ross is in and he is going to score but he doesn`t send him off.

"Ross has the ball under control but the referee is the only person in the ground who didn`t see it that way."


Broadfoot hauled McCormack to the ground with still a quarter of the game remaining but Mathieson, who is one of the longest serving officials on the national list, felt McCormack didn`t have the ball under control.

The Blackpool defender later saw a straight red card for a poor tackle on Marius Zaliukas but with just seconds remaining in the game, there was no time for Leeds to make use of the one-man advantage.
