SCHOLAR'S manager Adam Lee could not believe his side were not given an early penalty against Tilbury on Saturday.

Bar lost 3-2 to the Essex side, but had the crucial decision gone Town's way on five minutes it could have been a different story.

Striker Otis Williams appeared to be fouled in the Tilbury box, however no spot-kick was given.

After the game Lee said: "I think they (the officials) think it is too early in the game and they can't make the decision.

"For me it doesn't matter, the lad is clean in on goal and the ref says 'he tripped over his own feet' it's ridiculous."

Despite that Lee held his hands up over the goals his side conceded.

"There's no excuse from our point of view we let three shocking goals in."

He added: "It's frustrating because after that in the second half we knocked it around well and showed we're not a bad side."
