Barnsley manager Neill Collins was left upset by officiating decisions as the Reds lost 2-1 to Charlton Athletic.
Fabio Jalo had a goal disallowed for offside, and Devante Cole was denied a penalty after colliding with Addicks defender Michael Hector. Alfie May scored twice for Charlton, sending Collins’ team home empty-handed.

Collins commented after the game, “We should have been sitting here with a point. But we aren’t because of a bad call at the end of the game. He’s a yard onside, and I’m really dissatisfied.”

“It [the Cole incident] is a stonewall penalty. Devante goes through, is about to shoot, and is bundled over. I’m not sure how he didn’t comprehend that.

Barnsley created numerous opportunities, but their sole goal came from the penalty spot, where Adam Phillips levelled proceedings from 12 yards. Cole was given the nod up front, although it has been more than two months since he last scored a league goal.

Collins stated, “At halftime, we should have been ahead. However, we weren’t because of squandered opportunities. [Cole] is now going through a time. I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before he puts them in the back of the net.

“Alfie May demonstrated why he is the league’s top goalscorer with two excellent finishes. We have players who can do it, but we certainly missed too many good opportunities today, and Charlton were very clinical.”
