What did you think to Ross Joyce`s refereeing performance in the Sky Bet EFL League One match between Peterborough United and Rotherham United?

Referee Ross Joyce had a hit-and-miss game in our opinion. Some decisions he got spot on even if it did annoy both sets of fans, other decisions were simply bizarre!

Joyce, along with one of his assistants combined to deny Posh striker Jack Marriott a second successive hat-trick after both officials missed the ball going over the goal-line by at least a couple of feet in the first half!

He also booked Marcus Maddison for diving in the area even though it looked a clear trip on the Posh midfielder! If that was worthy of a yellow card then a lot of yellow cards should`ve been dished out as there were plenty of players going down at the lightest of touches to win their side a freekick and were less of a foul than the one committed on Maddison!

Four yellow cards were dished out during the match with Maddison being the only Posh player to receive a card. Former Posh man Joe Newell was one of three Millers players to be cautioned during the game.
