The pundits felt Wanderers might have got a slice of luck when Randell Williams’ goal was allowed to stand during their 3-1 win at Barnsley.

Williams’ in-swinging corner went straight in on the verge of full time, wrapping up a pleasing night in South Yorkshire.

The hosts felt Cameron Jerome had impeded goalkeeper Liam Roberts but the officials decided that no infringement had been committed.

Curtis Davies felt the goal could have been chalked off but says Jordan Williams should have done better at the front post.

He told Sky Sports: “Cameron Jerome does exactly what he does, he kind of stands in that hole and engages the keeper.

“The keeper is happy to try and wrestle Jerome. He doesn’t try to move away from him or make Cameron move towards him so it looks he is making a deliberate move that would allow the ref to give the foul.

“Ultimately, I think that is one that the referee did need to give. I am more disappointed with the front post.

“In these situations, especially with the in-swinger, the man on the front post should not move. Williams takes a slight step forward and it just goes over his head.

“It is good technique from Randell Williams to actually get it on target, but I think Williams at the front post needs to do better with that because then the keeper doesn’t have a problem at all.”

Another key decision was to award a penalty after Roberts was judged to have brought down Josh Sheehan in the box.

The Bolton midfielder pressed high up the pitch and pounced on a loose backpass – Williams was again the culprit.

Davies added: “It was a stonewall (penalty). Once it bounces and there is not much momentum on the ball, he just needs to hook it down the line.

“It is only because of the sheer hard work by Sheehan, he makes it happen. He is not chasing the ball, he is chasing where it is going to land.

“Unfortunately for Roberts, he just gets it wrong and takes him out. It is rightfully a penalty.”
