With the home keeper taken out, Yann Schories fires home our second goal

Brook Street battled to a 3-2 away win over Whiskaz Wonderers this afternoon in a match that they ended up playing the final eight minutes with ten men after Marcus Lövman had to be helped off with no substitutes left.

Along with Marcus, fellow defender Laurent Étcheverry was forced from the action due to the treatment meted out by the home side. Both injuries and the inability of the officials to spot the blatant fouls that resulted in them infuriated Arjen Bogaert.

“All I want is consistency from the officials. Kyle Fair picked up a booking for a 50/50 challenge, yet the lad that virtually assaulted Laurent only picked up the same. That was as clear a straight red as you’ll ever see. Marcus was hauled down as he jumped for the ball and landed awkwardly, yet we didn’t even get a foul. Unbelievable!”

He continued, “Fortunately we have players who just closed the match down and we retained our lead to get a very well deserved win. We dominated the match and anything less than three points would have been a travesty”.

When asked at the press conference if there had been any animosity as it was Wonderers who had killed our automatic promotion chances last season, Arjen replied, “Certainly not from our side. I don’t know what got into their players though as something clearly riled them”.

He continued, “We’re the champions and we’re up there to be shot at, I accept that, but today we were penalised whereas our opponents were getting away with murder. All I want is the rules to be applied to both sides, not just mine. Is that too much to ask for?”

Whether the authorities will take a dim view of the Brook Street coach’s comments remains to be seen, but tonight his side sit top of the league.
