Laws planning Reid appeal

Scunthorpe boss Brian Laws was furious with one red card, and the lack of another, following a 2-2 draw with Notts County.

Laws felt the sending off of his skipper Paul Reid for an aerial challenge with Yoann Arquin was harsh and claimed County's two-goal hero Lee Hughes should also have been sent off.

"I have seen the video evidence and Reid heads the ball," said Laws. "I will be talking with the referee and we will consider an appeal.

"Then just afterwards, there is clear video evidence again that Hughes has smashed our defender Tom Newey in the face and gets away with it. Then he goes and scores the goal that earns County a draw. But he should not have been in the field."

Rejuvenated Scunthorpe, looking for a third successive win since the return of Laws for his second spell in charge of the club, led twice. Full-back Christian Ribeiro fired them in front after 13 minutes with his first-ever league goal and midfielder Damien Mozika celebrated his first start of the season with a goal on the stroke of half-time.

"I thought we started extremely well," added Laws. "County are a good team and I was pleased with the way we played against them. It was difficult for us when we went down to 10 men, so overall I have to be happy with a point."

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
