Wagner Blames Ref As Town Are Held

David Wagner accused referee Lee Mason of costing Huddersfield a precious Premier League win at Cardiff City yesterday.

Huddersfield ended a run of nine successive defeats with a battling 0-0 draw against their fellow relegation strugglers.

But one point could have turned into three but for Mason changing his mind over giving Huddersfield a penalty when full-back Florent Hadergjonaj tumbled.

Mason spoke to his assistant Stuart Burt before reversing his decision, instead awarding a free-kick to Cardiff for Hadergjonaj pushing Joe Bennett before the Switzerland international fell in the box.

“Everybody knows the referee gave a big decision that cost us the game,” said Huddersfield boss Wagner, who revealed that he had only spoken to Burt and not Mason after the final whistle.

“It was the most clear-cut chance of the whole game and they took it away from us. I know they (officials) have a very difficult job, but sometimes they make it much more difficult for themselves.

“The referee even gave them the ball. I have no clue what was in their head. After seeing the footage, it’s a clear penalty, but I don’t know how many decisions like this have gone against us this season.

“We will probably get another phone call from the FA apologising for the decision. Six weeks ago, our negative run started with one of the worst days for Michael Oliver against Brighton when he made a mistake.”
