Potter ‘lucky’ to escape red

Visiting goalkeeper David Martin says that defender Darren Potter was “lucky” not to see red during the 0-0 draw with Port Vale.

Last man Potter brought down Ben Williamson in a clear goalscoring position and many home fans were convinced that Potter should have seen red. But after a delay, referee Nigel Miller only gave a yellow.

Martin told the media: “I would say he was very lucky and on another day he definitely could have gone.

“He was probably a little bit lucky with that one.”
