There were a total of three red cards shown as West Brom that were held by Cardiff in one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. James Collins opened the scoring for the visitors in the 34th minute before Callum Robinson equalized three minutes after the break. Alex Mowatt was sent off in the 76th minute before Sam Johnstone and Aden Flint were sent off at the final whistle. The result meant that West Brom have now gone three games without a win.
West Brom’s Valerien Ismael: “It’s a clear penalty – I can’t say anything else, it’s a penalty. We can’t change anything now. It’s frustrating – at some point, you need the luck that the referee does his job. It was not only the penalty decision – some decisions were for us, some against us – in my opinion, but it was also a poor refereeing performance. I just wanted to tell him I couldn’t understand why he didn’t give the penalty. The situation came and my emotion was high because it was at the end of the game, but I came down quickly.”
Cardiff’s Steve Morison: “It was all caused by them having a stonewall penalty and the referee not giving it. We were thankful he didn’t give it, but as for the two sendings-off at the end, I think they grabbed each other to stop the other from doing what they were going to do. Nothing happened – that happens all the time in a game.”
