Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law was in a frustrated mood after seeing his side held to a 2-2 draw at home by Nuneaton Town.

The Reds boss felt the game was in neither side’s control but was also left fuming after seeing a raft of decisions go against his team.

“I am disappointed really not to have won the game. There were a lot of strange decisions out there today.

“We were probably not as good overall as we have been over the last four or five games but still did enough to win the game.
“But obviously the result has been out of our control.”

Commenting on Nuneaton’s first goal of the game which came from a highly controversial penalty award, Law said: “I have never seen such a soft penalty.

“No-one knows what it has been given for. It was just a block tackle wasn’t it? “I can’t understand why that’s been given.
“I have seen the free kick on Tom Allan on the corner of the pitch (which went unpunished and from which Nuneaton scored their second), that is another big decision and they score from that.

“The lad that has brought Jamie Jackson down in the box, that is a big decision.

“There were so many big decisions today and unfortunately, the person that was making them wasn’t capable of doing that.”

Law was also aggireved by a lack of correct decision when his side were not awarded a goal when the ball appeared to cross the line in a goalmouth melee mid-way through the second half.

“Our lads are saying it was a foot over the line and the person that counts and the person that is making the decisions got it wrong” added the Reds boss.

“I don’t think the game was full of controversy. The game wasn’t ever under control and there was only one person who could do that and that person wasn’t capable.

“I don’t think it was necessarily two nasty teams but we are just disappointed to have only got one point out of the game.
“But again I suppose you have got to look on the positives and that is progress when we are disappointed with a 2-2 draw. I think in spells we showed the form of late but you are not going to get it week in, week out.”
