Abbott blasts ref after late equaliser

27 September 2009 05:09
Abbott was disappointed by the amount of added time the referee allowed and called on Graham Salisbury to explain his performance in Saturday's League One clash at Brunton Park.

"It's tough to take," he said. "We rolled up our sleeves against a very good side and came within 30 seconds of winning the game.

"The ref hasn't had the guts to come out and face us. He has hidden behind his door. They scored with a poor decision in the 95th minute.

"I just wish people would admit their mistakes but referees seem guarded against that."

Carlisle thought they had snatched only their second home win when substitute Scott Dobie scored a simple tap-in in the 69th minute just seven minutes after coming on in place of Richard Offiong.
