Women's expert: West Ham denied perfectly good goal in Arsenal defeat
We’re delighted to welcome Michelle Irons as our exclusive West Ham Women expert. Each week she’ll be giving her views on the biggest talking points at Victoria Road…
West Ham Women’s expert Michelle Irons feels the Hammers were unfortunate to have a goal ruled out during their 3-1 Women’s Super League defeat to Arsenal.
Dagny Brynjarsdottir had a goal disallowed in the first half after Kim little was adjudged to have been fouled during the corner.
However, Little clearly slipped and was not fouled, a decision which infuriated our Women’s expert Irons.
“Dagny scored a seemingly good goal, after heading the ball straight into the back of the net. The whistle blew for a foul and once again replay shows no contact with Kim Little falling over herself,“ she exclusively told West Ham Zone.
“It was a perfect well-drilled goal ruled out. It was a huge mistake by the officials. Dagny is in the form of her life and was denied a perfectly good goal.
“Our battling attitude is also one of their strengths and the Hammers were not intimidated by any so-called big club. We were hard done by as a perfectly executed goal was denied, but we move on.”
The Hammers were unfortunate in their defeat to the Gunners, but it appears the bad form has continued as they went down 5-4 to Brighton and Hove Albion in their most recent fixture.
Konchesky will be looking to get things back on track as the Hammers host Leicester City in their next WSL fixture at Victoria Road.
