Ref Had No Option

11 December 2016

Jim Bentley says Brendan Malone had no option but to call off the game against Newport County at half time.

The referee called time on the game at the break with the Shrimps 1-0 down due to a waterlogged pitch.

Bentley said: “The referee had no option really and he could have called it off earlier than he did to be honest.

“He gave it a go and as a game it was quite interesting because it was an all out battle with some really tasty tackles and both sides really going for it.

"There was some good football played as well and their goal was a cracker from the young lad but you could see towards the end of the first half that it was getting worse with standing water and it was probably getting a bit dangerous.

“It was the right decision, not something either side wanted I think, but we have no complaints.’’
