FANS have slammed the referee’s decision to dismiss Willy Boly during Nottingham Forest’s clash with Bournemouth.

The forest centre-back was sent off in the 23rd minute after he picked up two yellow cards, but those watching at home are convinced he shouldn’t have been shown a red.

Boly had been rightfully booked just five minutes into the game, but it was his second booking that left fans incensed.

The Ivory Coast international slid into a tackle against Cherries defender Adam Smith while appearing to come away with the ball cleanly.

His studs looked to be down and he only led with one foot, but regardless of the seemingly fair challenge Rob Jones dipped into his pocket for a second time and sent him packing.

Fans couldn’t believe what they were seeing and took to social media to share their opinions on the decision that was labelled an “absolute disgrace” by many.

One wrote: “So CLEARLY wins the ball. Absolutely ridiculous.”

While another labelled Boly’s challenge as “the cleanest tackle” and couldn’t fathom why he had been sent off.

One fan asked: “How does VAR make this mistake?”.

Although the decision was frustrating, it was not the fault of VAR with the officials at Stockley Park unable to intervene in red cards that come as a result of two yellows.

It wasn’t just fans that were furious about the decision either with Nottingham Forest’s new boss Nuno Espirito Santo venting his frustrations post match.

Steve Cooper’s replacement said: “Look I’ve seen it over and over again on the screen and I still cannot understand it.

“Honestly I cannot understand it. It’s a mistake and I think he should have taken more time for the VAR to advise him.

“I think we and our fans deserve more respect because this is a decision that totally changed the game and it’s not fair,”

It was even more frustrating for Nuno as he was unable to get any points on the board in his first game in charge at The City Ground.

Forest ended up losing the game 3-2 after Dominic Solanke secured himself a hat-trick and Bournemouth all three points with an injury time winner.

Despite the Tricky Trees valiant efforts they were on the receiving end of their tenth league defeat this season and now sit just two points off the relegation zone.
