TERRAS’ chief Jason Matthews has spoken out over a heated moment that ensued late on during his side’s 1-1 draw against St Neots Town on Saturday.

An altercation between Weymouth’s Jordan Copp and Saints’ Ben Jones saw the latter given a second booking for a challenge on Copp, who received a straight red for his reaction.

Giving his view, Matthews told Echosport: “The ball was going out, he (Copp) got pushed over and he got stood on.

“That’s how I saw it. They fronted each other up and Coppy has grabbed him.

“That inadvertently led to the incident and I can’t really condone Coppy’s behaviour. He was really upset about it.”

He added: “I feel that the referee got a few decisions wrong in a 10-minute period and that led to both sides getting frustrated.

“There is no point in dwelling on it, we have to move on.”
