Brown Slams Officials

The Rams were forced to play with just ten men after Richard Jackson was harshly dismissed 58 minutes into the game at Pride Park and in stoppage time Watford scored their winner although the linesman could clearly be seen flagging goalscorer Clarke Carlisle offside.

"I've seen the video and the officials have got the major decisions wrong," Brown said after the 2-1 defeat.

"I've been to see the referee and hopefully he will go home and rescind Richard Jackson's red card but we still get nothing out of the game because we've lost 2-1 when we shouldn't have.

"The linesman flagged for a goal-kick because he didn't see the ball go in the goal but Clarke Carlisle was two yards offside when he headed it in."
