Forth Wanderers boss Jamie McKenzie reckons his side were on the wrong end of two refereeing howlers in the 1-0 loss at Benburb on Saturday.

Forth did well for long spells against the league leaders but lost to a second half Jarvie goal which McKenzie reckons was blatantly offside.
He said: “The guy was five yards offside. With no linesmen it’s difficult for the referee but it seems we are on the wrong end of decisions like this every week. I don’t know if they are honest mistakes but we will get on with it.”
Jamie also felt Forth should have had a late penalty for a Greer foul on Keigan Parker, with the referee instead awarding a free-kick on the edge of the box.
Forth have now lost all four league matches since their 5-1 walloping of Greenock on the opening day.
Jamie and his troops are extra determined to beat Port Glasgow on Saturday as a tribute to stricken committee man Douglas McKendrick who has come out of a coma after suffering a major heart attack and remains in Wishaw General Hospital. Dougie’s family thank everyone for their continued support.
