VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh told BBC Radio Wales: "I've got to be careful how I say this, but I think the man in the middle [referee Andy Haines] has stole the show from us really.
"Where do you want Robbie [Willmott] to put his arms? They're down by his side, he hasn't made an attempt [to lift them], he's just put his body across.
"We get a player booked and sent off for penalties conceded, they concede a penalty and nothing happens. Work that one out, it's very inconsistent refereeing today.
"I'm going to go and ask his explanation after this."
