Dean Smith was highly critical of the officials after Aston Villa’s 3-3 draw with Sheffield United, with Billy Sharp scoring a controversial goal
Dean Smith criticised referee Tony Harrington and his team after a number of controversial decisions went against Aston Villa in their 3-3 draw with Sheffield United.
Despite falling behind in the 11th minute of Friday night’s Sky Bet Championship clash when Billy Sharp’s strike was confirmed by the Goal Decision System, the striker’s second of the night raised eyebrows after an apparent foul on goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic and undetected offside decision in the build-up.
Though Sharp later completed his hat-trick, Villa somehow managed to muster the strength to secure a draw in the final minute of stoppage-time, though Smith felt aggrieved his side weren’t awarded a penalty after Chris Basham appeared to foul Tyrone Mings.
