MANAGER Ian Dunn was left questioning Michael Wood’s red card - which he claims cost Boston Town the points against Desborough on Saturday.

With 30 minutes gone, the central defender was sent off for a full-blooded clash, with his side 1-0 up.

“The refs are there to make the tough decisions, but ours didn’t on Saturday,” Dunn said after the UCL Premier clash.

“Both players went in for the ball and their lad got it first.

“Woody’s collided with him - but that’s it.

“I never thought that was a red.”

Player-boss Dunn had forced Shane Clancy’s header home to give the Poachers the lead.

However, Andy Gordon and Ryan Morgan responded to give the visitors victory.

Gordon levelled before the break and Morgan notched in the second half.

“The red card changed the game,” added Dunn.

“To be fair to them, they played the extra man well and got the winner when we’d tired.

“But it was a deciusion that didn’t help us at all.

“Before that we were 1-0 up and cruising.”
