Second yellow for handball, grabbing the ball after going down. When do you ever see players booked for that?

Thought Byrnes first booking for kicking the ball away was slightly harsh as well given it was very early in the game.

Pet hate of mine when players do that. It's like they are making the call.

Nice learning curve for the young lad.

Didn't see that he'd handled it, I'm just half-watching with the sound off. If so then fair enough, refs shouldn't allow players to essentially make the decision for them.

One of their players did the same after he thought he was fouled in the box and the ref was clearly going to do nothing about it until a few of the Swindon boys pointed out that their player was sent off for the same thing.

I think Donaldson got booked for diving. Could really have been booked twice in one go.

A lot of the ball was in the air hard game or Luongo he quality not sure if from what I saw he is ready as a Def mid on the ball when he had it I liked him off the ball I think it passed around him but it was a frantic game.
