Williams Hopes For Better Referee

Williams Hopes For Better Referee

Ashley Williams is hoping that Saturday's referee makes better decisions than those made in the last derby match against Cardiff City.

The Welsh international defender was very unfortunate and unlucky to concede a late penalty in the game at Ninian Park in April. Joe Allen thought his 88th minute strike won us the game 2-1 but shortly afterwards, Mike Dean made a shocking decision to award a spot-kick.

Williams told Wales Online that the penalty decision still frustrates him:

“We should have won all three games last year.

“But especially that game at Ninian Park – that penalty decision still grates on me to this day.

“I’ve not spoken to anyone since that day who thought it was a penalty or even questionable – just that it was a ridiculous decision.

“And for the game to finish on that ruined a good match. Not only that, it could have proved vital with the way the season panned out.

“Referees have a hard job and important decisions have to be made so quickly – but you want those key decisions to be correct.

“Emotions can run high in games like this and I’m sure there will be plenty of fouls and niggles on Saturday because of the size of the game. We have to have a strong referee.”

Not confident about this ref, especially the incident with Wenger and on sunday (when he booked the wrong player). Should have got someone more experienced like Howard Webb!
