Derby County defender Adam Smith should have been booked twice against Watford
2:28pm Friday 25th October 2013 in Sport
If losing to Derby County by a late goal wasn’t bad enough for Watford fans, it has since been confirmed by the FA that a Rams player yellow carded in the 78th minute should have been booked earlier in the match.
Former Hornet John Eustace was booked in the 62nd minute of Saturday’s game between Watford and Derby but the FA’s Regulatory Committee has admitted it was given to the wrong player and it was Adam Smith who committed the foul.
Smith, who is on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, was then given a yellow card in the 78th minute when the score was 2-2 and during a period of the game when Derby boss Steve McClaren admitted Watford were “killing” his side.
Derby went on to win the match 3-2 thanks to an 88th-minute goal by Conor Sammon.
The referee, James Linington, was in charge of the game between League Two sides Southend United and Dagenham and Redbridge on Tuesday but he is not scheduled to officiate during the next week.
