Goode wrote on x: “Bevan Rodd absolutely embarrassing himself with a dive from a slight push there, seriously pathetic. There’s too much gamesmanship in the game at the minute trying to get players carded.”

Responding, one fan commented: “Yep, we said so from the East Stand. The boy should be embarrassed, terrible behaviour.”

Another said: “Totally agree – turning into football at this rate.”

A third added: “Saw it in the Leicester game too, a clumsy sorting of a blatant offside, rolls around for a bit, milking it like like a cow until Jasper gets a red card, then gets up and scores.”
