Darren Ferguson: Questioned linesman's decision to award Forest's opener

Darren Ferguson: Questioned linesman's decision to award Forest's opener

Scott Wootton scored on his Posh debut following his arrival on loan from Manchester United, but headers from Greg Halford and Elliott Ward gave Forest a 2-1 win.

Ferguson said: "To lose two goals and the game to two set-pieces is very disappointing because I thought a draw would have been a fair result.

"I am repeating myself a lot this season but I told the players afterwards that it was another game we should not have lost but it was frustrating to concede the way we did.

"Forest don't have too much height in the team for a Championship side but their two tallest players have got the goals from headers."

As for the officials, he said: "Things went against us at times. I have seen the first goal and I'm still not convinced that it was over the line but the referee's assistant decided from 40 yards away that it was.

"We should have also had what I thought was a blatant penalty but there's no point in talking to officials about things like that."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

W

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
