Boston United boss Craig Elliott believes referee David McNamara got it ‘totally wrong’ in the build up to Brad Abbott’s game-changing red card, report the Boston Standard.

With four minutes left on the clock The Pilgrims led hosts Ashton 1-0.

However, midfielder Abbott was shown a straight red card by the official for foul and abusive language for disputing a throw-in awarded to the Robins. And two minutes later the man advantage saw Liam Tomsett draw Ashton level.

“It’s foul and abusive language, but the referee’s got it totally wrong in terms of the decision.”
