“He Lost Control of the game” – Craig Hignett

Hartlepool manager Craig Hignett was less than complementary about referee Gareth Rhodes after his sides 2-1 defeat to Bromley.

Describing the performance as “very, very frustrating”, Hignett was given a yellow card for his protests towards the official.

A blatant foul throw as well as a soft booking for defender, Peter Kioso, were just a few such instances.

Hartlepool goalkeeper, Scott Loach also called for clearer communication between refs and players following the match.

The result sees the club slip further out of play-off contention and over ten points adrift of the top 6.

Leaving them the prospect of another season outside of the Football League.
