The match official failed to send off Wednesday midfielder Jeremy Helan for a second yellow-card offence during the first half.

"As we came off the pitch at half-time he came to me to apologise for the error he made," said Grayson.

"I think he's probably written the wrong number down in his book, which is staggering.

"I also think he should have been helped by his officials, who should be overruling because they all know, when a referee makes a mistake like that, who he's booking.

"The linesman should be helping out. He's not done it deliberately, but you can't make major mistakes like that.

"He's put (Michail) Antonio's number in his book, but he was nowhere near the incident.

"I don't mind referees making big mistakes in terms of tackles and sendings off, but something quite simple like that shouldn't be happening in Championship football."

When it was suggested Huddersfield might have grounds to replay the match Grayson added: "I'm not sure about that. No-one has said anything like that. I'd be very surprised.

"It's a shame, we shouldn't be talking about the referee after a Yorkshire derby, with a great atmosphere and two teams trying to win a football match."

It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
