Banbury United manager Paul Davis was not happy with several incidents - on and off the field - which took place during Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Weymouth.

The Puritans were beaten by a late winner from Stewart Yetton in the Evo-Stik Southern League clash at Weymouth. Keeper Leigh Bedwell had a couple of bottles hurled towards him after Yetton’s winning goal and Davis felt the referee was intimidated by the home fans.

He said: “There were several decisions which went against us, the biggest one was when Leam Howards was fouled by their keeper at 2-2. If we had gone in front the least we would have got from the game would have been a point.

“Leigh was getting flack all game from their fans and you can see the bottles come on to the pitch on the video of the game. Leigh had not protection at all from the officials or their stewards.

“We showed great character to get back into the game and our overall performance was very good and to score a couple of goals at Weymouth shows we are still an attacking force but again we’ve come away without a point. My players hare wondering what they have got to do to win a game.”

Now Davis has to pick his players up for Tuesday’s premier division clash with third-placed Corby Town at Spencer Stadium.
