Huddersfield manager David Wagner wouldn’t talk about anything else but the refereeing following their defeat at home to Brighton.
David Wagner refused to discuss Huddersfield’s 2-1 defeat by Brighton other than to slam referee Michael Oliver’s “many big mistakes”.
Oliver sent off Steve Mounie in the 32nd minute with Huddersfield a goal up and looking comfortable, and they paid the price for his dismissal when Brighton scored either side of half-time to win at the John Smiths Stadium.
In addition to the red card, Wagner was left fuming by Oliver’s decision not to award Huddersfield a penalty when he felt Brighton midfielder Pascal Gross should have been sent off for pulling down Alex Pritchard in the box, while the German thought substitute Leon Balogun should have been dismissed late on for a lunge on Erik Durm given Mounie’s dismissal.
