Priskin sees red in Spanish sun

Priskin sees red in Spanish sun

Watford striker Tamas Priskin saw red in the Spanish sun (and not in the sunburn sense of the word) but won`t suffer any further punishment following the 1-1 friendly draw with CF Balaguer.

The Hungarian hitman, on as a second half sub, was sent off for dissent by Spanish official Sergi Cano Gazguez (presumably he`s fluent in Hungarian!) right after the 3rd tier Spanish outfit cancelled out John Eustace`s opener.

But fears that Priskin`s misdeamenour would see him face a ban in the opening games of the Championship season have been thankfully dispelled after Malky Mackay pointed out that the man in black made a right ol` hash of things.

Speaking to the 'fficial site, the Braveheart Hornets gaffer said of the dismissal "I spoke to the referee afterwards and was very pleased that he recognised the situation and confirmed that he was rescinding the paperwork."

Williamson, Jenkins, Demerit and Hodson were all also cautioned by the Spaniard but Mackay reckons 'there were a total of eight yellow cards in the match but I'm convinced that if it had taken part in England there would have been none".

And in a move that could shake Anglo-Spanish relationships, the gaffer added "…it was clear that the referee struggled to adapt to the way English teams play."

See, we even go abroad and the ghost of useless refs follows us out there…Where`s that excellent Atwell bloke when you need him?
