RUFC - Opposition Managers View - Accrington

Rotherham United beat Accrington Stanley at the Fraser Arena yesterday afternoon with virtually the last kick - well header - of the game, after twice being behind.

With Millers Manager, Ronnie Moore bemoaning the fact that his team should have got more goals, Stanley boss, John Coleman says that the turning point of the game was the sending off of loan player, Kevin Long and the resulting penalty.

'I knew at the time it wasn`t a penalty,` Coleman told Accrington`s Official Site. 'You could see from where we were that he`d fallen before the edge of the box. Alright, you like to think these things even themselves out and we have had a penalty that wasn`t a penalty. The difference is that the player wasn`t sent off.

'It`s debatable whether it was a sending off yesterday because it`s debatable whether it was a foul. The one thing that is one hundred per cent sure is that it wasn`t in the box.`

Regardless of whether it was a pen or not - Alfie was the last man and Long pulled him back so it was a red card

100% right caz sending off was spot on but we were too far away to see if it was in the area or not tv proved it was a foul
