Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock was adamant that Cardiff City’s equaliser should have been ruled out in yesterday’s 1-1 draw.
The experienced Boro chief was returning to his former club and it appeared as though he would be leaving with the three points, after George Saville put the visitors ahead.
However, the Bluebirds were level in the 70th minute when Sheyi Ojo stabbed home from close range and that’s how the game was finished.
The Cardiff strike came from a corner where Saville appeared to be blocked off, allowing Kieffer Moore to head towards goal unchallenged. And, the fact the offence went unpunished angered Warnock, who made it clear to Wales Online that his team had been hard done by.
“I thought we did enough to win it. Disappointed with the goal. It’s an obvious foul to start with.
“They’ve blocked Saville to give Kieffer Moore a free header. Referees at this level should be able to see things like that. It’s a disgrace really after last Saturday’s offside that wasn’t offside. That’s four points we’ve thrown away this week with decisions.”
Warnock moaning about decisions is certainly nothing new but you have to say that he does have a point here.
It was a foul in the build up and it should have been spotted by the official who did appear to be in a decent position to make the call.
But, it was still poor marking from his players and they need to quickly move on as they prepare for another game in the week.
