Alfreton Town boss Billy Heath could not hide his frustration as a refereeing mistake cost his side two points, the Derbyshire Times report.

Luke Shiels’ 66th minute goal in the 1-1 draw at Blyth Spartans was ruled out for offside, despite a home defender clearly heading Jordan Sinnott’s free-kick to the back post.

Heath said: “If the referee does his job today we win the game. There were some big decisions.

“One in the first half (saw) Richard Peniket virtually rugby-tackled in the box. Then the offside goal was just beyond belief.

“Jordan Sinnott crossed the ball, it came off their man and he (the referee) gives offside. l don’t want to be a paranoid manager, but we’re getting decisions against us because we’re Alfreton — we’re not fashionable at times.

“l don’t think we get anything during the games.”
