Bulls rage at Attwell

Published Add your comment

Warwickshire official Stuart Attwell incurred the wrath of the Hereford management in the aftermath of their 3-0 defeat at the County Ground.

Boss Graham Turner was left furious after the referee awarded Swindon a hotly disputed second goal, which ultimately pointed the struggling Bulls to a fifth successive League One defeat.

Turner refused to speak to the press after the match, but first-team coach John Trewick raged: "It beggars belief the officials can't get these type of decisions right and for the second time this week we have suffered. Simon Cox was one of three Swindon players standing offside and I can't believe his goal was allowed to stand."

Cox's second goal knocked the stuffing out of Hereford, who have not scored in their past four games and have lost their last five, and the striker admitted: "I was clearly standing offside when Owain Tudur Jones played it into the six-yard box.

"There were three of us between the goalkeeper (Peter Gulacsi) and Hereford's last defender and the only reason I flicked it past him was because I knew I was offside.

"I couldn't believe it when I looked round to see that the linesman wasn't flagging, but I'm certainly not going to turn down scoring another goal."
