Kerr unhappy with derby referee
Coach Dylan Kerr is happy with his side’s derby win. However he thinks the performance of the referees warrants a lot of criticism.
“This was a derby game but we kind of controlled the game, through the field was not very good. I, however, have to talk to the referee because I am not happy with this performance; every little infringement he penalized but in our case he let it go! We should have had two penalties in the first half but he didn’t,” he said to goal.com
