Yes it did hit the arm, but I say that it was ball to hand not hand to ball. Just really unlucky as 3 players working hard to get there.
Would have felt hard done by if that was at the other end and the ref had blown up. I got the feeling that the referee doesn't like seeing goals scored from corners. The number of times the ref gave a free-kick to the defending side at set pieces was staggering!
Very well deserved point,could and maybe should have been three. Things starting to come together now,just still don't make enough of the good positions we get into. Would like to see Taylor rested and see what Ellis or white can do alongside Cunnington
Thought we did enough to win today,it looks like we are at last getting there.(Famous last words!) Did you know the beer was 50p dearer for the Rovers fans? Say what you like about Pipe,but I thought it was nice of him to clap Rovers fans before and after the game. Oh yes, didn't get wet at all!!!

A couple of points.
Did anyone else think it was a weird time to bring Ellis on? Only 3 or 4 minutes after half time I think. The only thing I can think of is that DC didn't make that change at half time because he wanted to see if FGR made changes. OK, thigh injury.
I don't have access to replays, but did anyone else think MT might have been offside with his header? I know the linesman didn't flag, but that doesn't mean much. * having now seen a very bad quality replay be was probably level.
Don't understand people being so harsh on Cunnington, I think he's had a good couple of games.
The commentators on bt sport agreed with my view that Cunnington had a poor game. Did very little
I'm not taking sides, but just pointing out how people view things differently. From the BEP website. Adam Cunnington was doing much better for Rovers at the other end when holding the ball up intelligently and bringing others in to play before suffering a thigh injury to bring a premature end to his afternoon at the start of the second half.
