That's Motherwell 1-1 away and Dundee 1-2 home we've been done by officials not giving us a stonewall penalty, then you get Sevco being awarded 4 in the one game, 3 of which weren't penalties, it really is ridiculous that these officials are so incompetent and yet get to keep on refereeing games.
It also looked like the red card just suddenly got produced after a change of mind, Byrne walked away and suddenly Aitken chased after him holding his red card out, I honestly thought it was only going to be a yellow and thought if the ref thought it a red he'd have had the card out straight away. Didn't even make me concerned about it possibly being a red, it was mistimed but not anything that looked dangerous, complete joke of a ref.
Dundee were allowed more freedom to piss about with the ball around our box after that decision by Aitken, taking one of our main midfield player out of the game. Still couldn't see them scoring, their shooting was awful, little looping header and a peach of a free kick got them their goals though, and can see why they celebrated them so much, it was a result that moved them up to 10th place and gives them belief they can stay up.
As has been said, Hardie was isolated after the sending off too, he had to keep turning back with the ball looking for support that took 20 or so seconds to come, which gave their big No3 the chance to put a tackle in, would've been totally different if he had a player up there with him to lay the ball off to and then get himself into the box for a return pass.
Annoying as the defeat was due to match officials incompetence, we just have to move on to the next game and use that feeling of injustice to good use, motivating us a bit more against Killie. Hopefully we'll have Dolly and Tiffoney back fit for that game to give us some stronger options up front.
