Paul Hurst believes referee Tim Robinson was wrong to send Tayo Edun off on an afternoon where the Blues boss was less than impressed with the standard of officiating.

The Fulham loanee was dismissed just before half time, picking up his second yellow card for a tackle on Axel Tuanzebe.

“I don’t think it’s a red card. I’ve not seen it close up but at the time and from wide-angled footage - the second one especially - if it’s a foul then you don’t see referees (give them),” Hurst said.

“He gave himself loads of time to think about it and I thought he was just letting the situation settle down and would just tell Tayo to be careful, if it was a foul.

“But when he produced it I was amazed in all honesty. I think he booked Alan Hutton in the second half and that wasn’t a booking either. It’s ridiculous. We’re trying to make the sport non-contact it feels like and I genuinely don’t think anyone wants to see that. I know I certainly don’t and I don’t think the fans our players do.

“I think he (referee Tim Robinson) had a bad game and I will have to put that in the report. We also got a couple of soft ones towards the end.

“People can say it evened itself out, but it didn’t even itself out. Both sets of staff will probably have a similar view.”
