'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Was it, wasn't it?

Steven Gillespie secured Colchester a point at Scunthorpe on Saturday although it was very much a case of 'was it, wasn't it' for the striker.

Confusion reigned at Glanford Park as the ball crossed the line because Gillespie was not sure if the referee had awarded the goal or not?

The ref, Miller, below his whistle before the ball crossed the line so Gillespie, as he told The East Anglian Times, thought this was because Scunthorpe keeper Josh Lillis had fouled him and this foul was being awarded: 'I didn't know what was happening at first, because there was no one jumping on my back.

'I turned around and the referee was pointing towards the half-way line, so I thought has he given a foul? No one sort of knew.

'It was a little bit of a mix-up, but there was never going to be too many celebrations anyway because we wanted to go out and try and get the winner.'

Despite the goal being awarded Lillis was shown a yellow card with the advantage played.

After scoring his first league goal of the season Gillespie questions if this should not have been a red card as it was a professional foul: 'the referee booked the keeper afterwards, so if he has deemed it at as a foul why was it not a red card?'

The main thing is the goal stood and The U's came away with a point.
