Lowe agrees contentious second goal was harsh on Reds

-

Although the beneficiary of a suspect refereeing decision, Kenny Lowe has suggested he would have reacted similarly to Guillermo Amor following Andy Keogh’s controversial first goal in the Glory’s 3-1 win over Adelaide United.

The goal resulted from referee Jarred Gillett opting to not award a seemingly obvious foul on Eugene Galekovic by Rostyn Griffiths.

Lowe sympathised with Amor over the decision.

“We’ve seen them given, and if I was in his position I’d probably be screaming blue murder”, he said.

“Look he’s a placid guy usually, but he was very animated today and he looked upset, so I can see his point of view.”

“But if I was in his boat, I’d be swinging from the rafters with a rope around my neck.”

It was a game that Gillett struggled to control, brandishing nine yellow cards and one red in total, but was an aspect of the game Amor proposed was not up to professional standards.

“We are professional players and we work everyday to come here and win games” said Amor.

“We want the rest of the football here in the same line to be professional, because if it is not we are in danger.”

“Today the decisions for the cards come from minimal things.”

“Our players don’t deserve this, they don’t deserve this.”

It was an up and down game for the Glory who prior to going 2-1 ahead, were distinctively outplayed by Adelaide.

Perth are still yet to hit top form but are still encouragingly placed after seven games, and Lowe feels his team aren’t fully satisfied with their output so far this season.

“We’ve played all the top teams, but I think there is bags more potential in there” said Lowe.

“I think if you asked all the players they would say they aren’t overly happy where they are to be truthful.”

“I think there is a lot more to come out of them and they have spoken about it as a group, and if it does come out it will be great for everybody.”

For Adelaide it is back to the drawing board to hopefully rectify what has been a horrendous start to their title defence.

Amor however was vehement that his team are doing all the right things to turn results around.

“Our players, our team, our attitude, our sacrifice, our performance was fantastic.”

“With this, we will go up for sure.”
