Alex Dyer: Referee made the correct decision

Kilmarnock assistant manager Alex Dyer backed referee John Beaton’s decision to abandon our clash with Motherwell as the right call.

Heavy fog surrounded Rugby Park during half time, meaning the official called a halt to the game one minute into the second half.

With visibility so poor for supporters and players, Dyer says the whistler had no choice but to bring matters to a close.

He said: “Like I said in there, it’s the right call from the ref you know, we had a little chat about it for the health and safety of the lads and obviously the supporters as well, then it’s the right call.”

Reflecting on the 45 minutes of play, he added: “It was an even game.

“They had a good opportunity, we had a couple of balls whipped across the box so I thought it was even game and we go in at half-time and both teams would be fairly happy.

“We were hopefully coming out in the second half and step it up a bit, but it wasn’t to be so we’ll wait until the next time when we play them again.”
