McCall bemoans referee decisions

Published Add your comment

Motherwell manager Stuart McCall revealed assistant referee Francis Andrews was "absolutely adamant" he had made no mistake despite denying Motherwell a clear goal and awarding a penalty for a challenge outside the box as Hibernian won 4-0 at Fir Park.

Stevie Hammell thought he had cancelled out David Wotherspoon's long-range opener when he headed at least a foot over the line before Ben Williams clawed it out, but referee Stevie O'Reilly and Andrews failed to award the goal.

McCall said: "Everything that could go against us did go against us. The first half we created umpteen chances and I just told the lads at half-time to play the same way, although obviously tighten up at the back. But obviously we scored a goal that was a foot and a half over the line but the linesman is still adamant it didn't go over."
