Hartlepool boss Danny Wilson has slammed referee Lee Probert after the 3-1 loss to Swansea City this afternoon.
Probert controversially awarded the visitors a penalty just seconds before half time. Defender Ben Clarke was adjudged to have unfairly challenged Jason Scotland despite vocal appeals from the Hartlepool players, who laid claim that Clarke had got the ball not the man.
Scotland converted from the spot to see his goal tally for the season to go one shy of the 30 goal mark.
With just seconds on the clock Hartlepool United went 1-0 up after Dennis Lawrence slipped on the greasy Victoria Park turf. Midfielder Gary Liddle took full advantage to fire past Dorus De Vries. Pool's could consider themselves unlucky for not extending their lead after James Brown dispossed Andy Robinson only to see his effort go wide of De Vries goal.
Swansea levelled the score through Darren Pratley on 23 minutes. The Swansea midfeilder picked up the ball inside the Hartlepool box to fire past a stranded Lee-Barrett.Weathering the oncoming storm by the home side , Swansea grabbed a vital third goal on 73 minutes following a flowing counter attack that saw Pratley score into a open goal.
Danny Wilson has expressed his disappointment over his sides loss but insists that proceedings could have been so different if their second half pressure could have told.
He Spoke to Pools world.
| ''The referee made a horrendous decision today and he's got to admit to that.He can't hide behind any excuses, he has to stand up and be counted because he's cost us the game this afternoon.'|
'It was a titanic effort from the boys and a fantastic performance - they were absolutely brilliant for ninety minutes.We could have been three goals up in the first five or ten minutes really and we sliced them apart numerous times at the back.
'It was a bit sloppy defending for their equaliser and the third goal but the second one was a poor decision and it changed the game.''
