Tenbury United suffer West Midlands Division Two loss at Ettingshall Park Farm

Ettinghshall Park Farm 5 Tenbury United 2.
DEFENDER Aaron Morris felt refereering decisions cost United dear in this West Midlands League Division Two defeat at Ettingshall.
Morris said the referee showed only yellow cards - rather than red ones - in ‘two big decisions’ in Saturday’s match.
“Mike Foster was through on goal when we were 3-1 down and the keeper handled the ball outside the area,” said Morris.
“The goalkeeper was shown only a yellow card and then Ettingshall went down the other end to make it 4-1.”
Morris added that his brother, Ryan, was then brought down in the box for a penalty, and the culprit also escaped receiving a red-card.
“We felt those were two big decisions in the game and they didn’t go in our favour which was hard to take after our previous match when we had three sent-off,” said Morris.
The returning George Pearson and Morris, himself, scored for United, who host Gornal Athletic Reserves in the league this Saturday. Morris added: “It has been a tough couple of weeks for the club but if we can get a few players back, then we will be OK.”
