Dougie in call for more professional refs

First published in Sport

DOUGIE Freedman has called for more professionalism among Championship referees after believing Wanderers should have had a penalty at Leeds yesterday.

The Whites manager was disappointed the West Midlands ref Phil Gibbs failed to award his side a spot kick for a foul on David Ngog.

Freedman said: “The referees and their assistants are part-time, so it is not their fault.

“They don’t train all week and they don’t get help. They don’t get coached or mentored.

“There should be a more professional approach because there is so much at stake.”
