While the fourth goal summarised the shambles of yesterday’s Derby opponents there was one other incident worthy of note.
Late on in the second half Joe Hart was setting up another attack by taking a quick goal-kick, obviously too quick for for some. Seeing an open goal Scot Arfield stepped forward to take a shot and sent it over the crossbar.

Unfortunately for the Canadian soccer star he was inside the penalty box when he made contact, even if he found the net the goal wouldn’t have stood. Fortunately, sympathetic ref Nick Walsh opted not to book the veteran midfielder.
Away to Ajax on Wednesday Arfield, Connor Goldson and John Lundstram won’t find the same friendly level of refereeing.
