Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson was shown a red card after the match after a heated confrontation with Barnet goalkeeper Laurie Walker.

The National League match between Wrexham and Barnet finished 0-0 in Hyve, a very flat game that was saved by a 51-minute red card for Callum McFadzien.

He ordered the Wrexham player to walk to put his foot on striker Barnet Walker after the goalkeeper had come out to recover a loose ball in the penalty area.

Referee Ed Walker felt he had no choice but to send off the 29-year-old McFadzeen, but Parkinson felt the Bees goalkeeper had a meal because of the contact he felt.

McFadzian’s leg appeared to hit Walker’s head on the way in as he challenged the ball, but a second camera angle showed thumbscrews grabbing his opponent’s head on approach.

However, Parkinson was clear of his mind about what had happened.

“It’s a beautiful red card,” Parkinson said after the match. I don’t see it. It’s his late leg, there’s no actual intention there. For me, he messes up and the keeper makes a meal out of it and that affects the referee’s decision. When you get down to 10 men, that’s a good point. I always thought there might be time for us. But it didn’t come. The players went deep and gave a strong performance against a good team. ยป
