Steve Bruce unhappy with Foy decision on Gary

Hull City manager Steve Bruce was not happy with the way referee Chris Foy did not send off Gary Cahill for his second yellow card. Chelsea took on Hull at Stamford Bridge and they managed to win the game comfortably 2-0.

The task of three points for the West Londoners was made a little easy in the second half after the referee sent off Hull’s Tom Huddlestone with a second yellow card. His two rash challenges meant that Hull were not able to put up much of a fight in the closing moments of the game. Bruce reckons that Chelsea should have also been reduced to 10 men.

Bruce has recalled the incident in the second half when Cahill appeared to simulate a challenge in order to earn a penalty. Neither a penalty nor a booking was given and this turned out to be a crucial moment in the match.

A booking for Cahill in this incident would have been his second of the evening and the match would have had an even set of players. As it was, Chelsea comfortably got three points that kept them at the top of the table. Eden Hazard scored early on while Diego Costa’s continued his impeccable form to maintain the 100% home record for the blues this season.

“If he hasn’t dived, I don’t know what one is. Chris Foy had one of those awful afternoons.We could have defended the first goal better, but the big issue in the game is the Cahill situation. The referee shows his intent because he’s booked two players for diving and, for me, Cahill is lucky to be on the pitch for his first challenge. We all know what he’s trying to do, he’s trying to get a penalty. The referee is 10 yards away and there are no excuses,” said Bruce.
