Port Vale manager John Askey says that Salford City’s equaliser in their 1-1 draw with the Valiants should not have stood. Askey says there was a foul on goalkeeper Scott Brown that should have been spotted.
The Valiants drew 1-1 with Salford with the returning Mitch Clark setting up the opener on the hour mark. However, Salford equalised on 75 minutes through striker Tom Elliott’s controversial strike.
Their player has made contact with Browny before he has headed it. So, normally the referee would give a foul but today he hasn’t…
Speaking to the media after the match Askey commented: “I thought in the first-half we were definitely the better team. The second-half was a bit scrappy.
“Once we had scored they out us under a little bit of pressure. I thought we were going to ride it out. I am just disappointed with the goal they scored. The ball shouldn’t have come in, in the first place so I was disappointed with that.
“When it did, their player has made contact with Browny before he has headed it. So, normally the referee would give a foul but today he hasn’t.”
