RUFC - Evans 'Ref Had A Bad Day

RUFC - Evans 'Ref Had A Bad Day

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans said his team were on the wrong end of some atrocious refereeing decisions at the Bank's Stadium this afternoon.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield after the one-all draw with Walsall, the Millers Boss said, 'I'm not questioning the referee's integrity because Stuart (Attwell) is a good referee. But, without looking at it, I can only presume that he got his positioning mixed up because when the boy pulled Nardiello back he should have gone off and all he got was a yellow and then later on Nardiello was through on goal and it should have been a red card and a penalty. I've had this referee before and he's an honest man and he's just had a bad day like we all have bad days, and, as a manager, you have to believe that decisions level themselves out throughout the season although, if that's right, then we have four or five big ones to come.

'But it is a tough place to come and we've had to work hard and we've got a point in a game where, really, we deserved to take three. Walsall are a good side, you don't beat the likes of Crewe and Wolves and Brentford away if you aren't that and they've got some decent players with a Manager who gets them well organised.

'We went one up front then they scored a scrappy goal then Nardiello gambles on a back-pass the guy pulls him down and it should be a red card it doesn't happen and at half-time we told the boys to just concentrate on playing. Then the penalty isn't given, and both benches knew it was a penalty.'

Asked if they'd come for a win, Steve said, 'Well we aren't going to hide ourselves, We are probably the most entertaining team to play away and we are going to try and win football matches. But I am going away today very frustrated and we need to learn after today and one of the things we need to learn is that sometimes you have to appeal for things.'

A 'bad day' is a very polite way of saying how poor this Referee was
