Scott bemoans bemusing decisions

Published Add your comment

Brentford boss Andy Scott was left mystified by a string of odd refereeing decisions after his side secured a last-gasp 1-1 draw with Darlington

The Bees kept in touch with the promotion pack after young defender Karleigh Osborne's 90th-minute equaliser knocked Darlington off top-spot.

The late strike cancelled out Richie Foran's opener after 60 minutes when he headed home unmarked from Franz Burgmeier's free-kick.

Scott said: "There were some very strange decisions. It annoys me that at this level we get young refs or those demoted from higher leagues even though the rules are the same in League Two.

"You sometimes wonder whether these people have ever been involved in the game. It would have been a travesty if we had not got anything from the match."
