Oli deserved red card - Stimson

29 August 2009 07:10
Gillingham manager Mark Stimson has criticised referee Karl Evans for not sending off his own player at Walsall. Stimson was expecting winger Dennis Oli to receive a second yellow card in the second half of their 0-0 draw at the Banks's Stadium for a bad challenge. Stimson said: "I think Dennis was fortunate to stay on the pitch. I think he got that one wrong. "Dennis Oli should have been sent off for a second yellow - don't ask me why he didn't but obviously I'm pleased." Stimson implied the incident would contribute to him giving the referee a low mark in his match report. He added: "I had a little debate with the referee and I said we have to mark you referees in loads of different areas."
