On first view it appeared so, there was grass visible between the bye line and the ball, but on the second view along the line I wasn’t convinced. I thought that t...

Maupay dismissed after the game ended for mouthing off at Jon Moss. They never learn, oh dear, how sad, never mind.

That should be a two match ban and I have just realised that Dunk has been dismissed once before during this season, therefore, his ban should be two matches.
