Port Vale fans and management not very happy with Mr Speedie. Port Vale shot deliberately pushed onto the crossbar by a Stanley defender's hand falling straight to the feet of a Port Vale player who tapped the ball home. Mr Speedie had already blown for the penalty and inevitable red card. The penalty was subsequently saved. It seemed to me, even as a Stanley supporter that he could have waited another couple of seconds to see what happened rather than reacting so quickly to the hand ball.

An interesting one. Presumably if Mr Speedie had allowed the goal, he wouldn't then have been able to issue a red card, just a yellow. Which is better, I wonder, playing v 10 men or v 11 with a goal advantage. And what if the offender had subsequently scored a goal, perhaps the equaliser or winning goal? I don't imagine the PV management would have been too happy. And I have to say I've seen it happen, albeit at a lower level. A bit of a dilemma all round. Thoughts?
