Caretaker manager Andy Dawson wishes to clarify his position on the Iron’s second goal, scored by Josh Morris, at Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.
He said: “In the heat of the moment it was a difficult situation, with it being such an important game when there was so much at stake, not knowing the full circumstances with the goalkeeper and not seeing exactly what went on.”
“In hindsight and having watched it back, we regret the decision made and would have done things differently,” he added. “We’re just thankful that it didn’t affect the outcome of the game or influence the league table at the final whistle.”
Club captain Rory McArdle also wanted to provide a player’s perspective. He said: “Emotions were riding high during the game, and looking back on the situation, we can see why Plymouth and their fans were aggrieved. In retrospect, we feel we could have dealt with it in a different manner.”
Andy Dawson concluded: “I went and apologised to their manager after the game and he accepted the apology. We wish Plymouth Argyle well going forward.”
