Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher believes Lee Mason lost focus during Lewis Dunk’s unapproved goal

Former Premier League umpire Dermot Gallagher believes Lee Mason lost focus during Lewis Dunk’s inadmissible goal

Albion lost the game 1-0 at the Hawthorns yesterday, but the decision to disqualify Dunk’s free kick was the main theme of the game

The controversial moment of the game came on Jan. Minute when Albion received a free kick after Gallagher fouled Alexis Mac Allister right outside the box

Skipper Lewis Dunk quickly took the free kick, but AFTER the whistle, and continued his attempt in the top corner with Sam Johnstone still completely out of position

VAR referee Simon Hooper then appeared to be offside against Dan Burn

The final decision was that the free kick should be repeated, which Dunk then put directly on Johnstone

After the game, Dunk described the decision to knock out the goal as “terrible”

Speaking of Sky Sports, Gallagher said, “I was in games many years ago where I lost focus for a while and I think that’s key

“Lee has lost focus here He tried to focus after the free kick. He has just lost focus a little and is not quite in the zone to make accurate decisions

“He should never have been given a free kick, but after doing that he has to go through the process

“I think he quickly realized that he was right to blow a second time to say I wanted to stop and control it

“The ball went into the net and at that point the VAR told him that the ball hadn’t come into the net before the whistle sounded, so the goal would not stand

“I think the fact that he went to the bank gave him some time to think and created that time to bring his thoughts together and when he did go back he would be in a better mood to reconsider this situation to start”
