We are going towards a non-contact sport and no one wants that

Paul Hurst felt Tayo Edun was harshly sent-off against Aston Villa.

The loanee from Fulham was dismissed after picking up a second yellow card in quick succession before half-time.

“I have not seen the first tackle,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“The second one, it’s a wide angle view I have seen. I can’t really see if he nicks the ball first, or the other lad nicks it so I can’t really make a decision on whether it’s a foul or not but it’s not a booking.

“I think it’s the wrong decision. I was expecting the referee to say ‘be careful’ and have a quiet word. That is what you normally get.

“We are almost getting to the point of it being a non-contact sport and no one wants that.

“That has impacted on us. We have a game on Tuesday and the lads have had to put in that extra effort that they shouldn’t have had to.”
