Matchday Thread PNE v The Plastics - 22/04/23 - KO:17:30 - Championship

Just watched the 20 minute highlights on Sky and they have excelled themselves once again. Showed two Rovers shots which went about 15 yards wide but missed out Whitemans free kick and McCanns shot well saved near the end. I’m sure they leave the editing to a work experience kid.
Did they show the Brad Potts skier ?

Shameless Szmodics handled himself badly

The referee Robert Jones spotted that Blackburn Rovers' Sammie Szmodics had used his left hand to steer the ball into the Preston net. There is an argument for bringing in a double yellow here for sustained simulation: first the handball and then the The sooner a ten-minute cooling-off sin-bin gets brought in for dissent the better. Sadly, such behaviour scars most games and this highlighted what officials are up against. Jones was calm and decisive, his handling more impressive than Szmodics'

shamelessness in pleading innocence. It's cheating. Szmodics' team-mates even had the nerve to join in.

Blackburn are a terrific club, and Jon Dahl Tomasson a good head coach, but these antics were beneath them.

Their supporters are continuing to defend it on social media. "But but but the Coventry keeper did it." Is the defense.
Hope the Dingles obliterate them tonight.
