The red card seemed very harsh to me. Their striker beat Osbourne to the ball and in the process hit the ball away from goal and towards the left side of our penalty area/their right wing. It was just outside the area and was a foul, but for me it was never a red.

The open goal was a bad miss. Gus (I think) robbed their midfielder whilst they were trying to play out from the back. He released Eddie down our right who cut in and squared it to Coker across the six yard box, who then scuffed his effort wide of the post. Their keeper did fly out at him and may have put him off, but really you'd expect most players to put it away.

The penalty seemed like a penalty to me. Eddie beat their player down the wing and cut into the box, their left back was the wrong side of him and brought him down. Might have gone down a little easily, but it was a silly challenge and none of their players complained at the time.

It was a really good performance overall. With 11 men we controlled most of the opening 20 minutes and were very unlucky not to score when Cooper's header came back of the inside of the post. Even with 10 men in the first half we seemed to be causing most of the problems, but the wind was making it difficult for them to get back up the pitch. Second half was mainly in our half, but we defended very well and didn't really concede many opportunities. Was definitely a point gained in the those circumstances, but was also a little frustrating given the three opportunities that were missed.
