Brighton and Hove Albion defender, Adam Webster, thinks John Lundstram should have been sent off during their 1-1 draw with Sheffield United.
Webster also believes that Brighton could have had a penalty when the ball hit Ben Osborn’s arm in the box in the second half.
The challenge by Lundstram on Lewis Dunk occurred after half-time as well. It was checked by VAR for a possible red card but nothing was given.
“On another day we might have had the penalty and also the red card for a challenge on Dunky, which seemed to be a horrible tackle. That could have gone for us,” Webster told the Mid Sussex Times.
Should Lundstram have been dismissed?
In truth, it looked like Dunk could actually be sent off himself during the incident as the centre-back stretched for the ball. Lundstram won it and followed through into the 28-year-old – who then received lengthy treatment.
The decision seemed like a fair one, as it did when the Seagulls claimed that Osborn had handled the ball inside the box.
What the Blades will feel most disappointed about is that they didn’t manage to win the match at Bramall Lane. They dominated the first half and took the lead through a superb Enda Stevens’ strike.
Yet poor defending allowed the visitors to equalise through a Neal Maupay header just four minutes later.
Losing Stevens to injury at the break was a blow, with Osborn replacing him on the left. But they never really found their rhythm, with the play appearing a little stunted at times.
John Fleck – who signed a new contract until 2023 before the game – was a bright spark in midfield and went close with an effort from the edge of the box.
However, Mat Ryan was hardly tested in the Brighton goal and their defence stood firm.
