There are some things you just can’t legislate for.

And bad refereeing is certainly one of them, although given the rap that some Championship referees have gotten in recent weeks, perhaps it’s something you can come to expect an legislate for. Either way, the Blues can find themselves rather aggrieved after last night, as they were on the wrong end of a rather bizarre call in the early stages of the second half as they drew 0-0 away at Millwall.

After a Marc Roberts long throw had been played into the box, the ball fell to Kristian Pedersen in the box and he swiveled and fired the ball into the net, only for the whistle to have been blown for a ‘foul’ by Harlee Dean in the buildup, despite the fact that TV replays showed it may have been a very soft call.

Were the Blues robbed on this occasion?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And this was a decision that did not go down well with Birmingham City fans, as they took to social media to tear into the officials for their decision to chalk off the goal.

At least we’re not in a relegation/promotion battle, so it’s not that big a deal, but I suppose it’s the principle of it all.
