It's fair to say referee James Thian will be Stu Hogg is given his marching orders by James Thian. Photo: John Cowpland his own drinks in the Hawke's Bay United clubrooms tonight. Even a local official reckoned he'd heckled one of his own for the first time today.

To say his performance left a lot of to be desired, would be an understatement. This was a passionate local derby between two sides with designs on the New Zealand Football Championship playoffs and Thian was not up to the occasion.

A straight red for Stuart Hogg, when the players were scuffling on two fronts, and six yellow cards would indicate he wasn't in control.

Things had been testy for some time, with the Hogg brothers (Stuart and Ian) the target for a good deal of chat from the YoungHeart Manawatu players. But matters reached an ugly head when Hawke's Bay United striker Jeremy Brockie had a 51st minute goal disallowed.

Ian Sandbrook had just cleared the ball off the line, after Graham Fyfe beat Michael Utting in goal. The ball pin-balled about, cannoning off a Manawatu player and in to Brockie's path. He scored, Thian pointed to halfway and Hawke's Bay began their celebrations.

Only linesman Condrad Dickinson-Burrows' flag was up, for an apparent offside by Fyfe, and Thian called them back.

Any semblence of referee control was gone, the players took things in to the own hands and when linesman Glen Lochrie spied an retatliatory butt from Stuart Hogg, the Hawke's Bay player saw red.

"We had a perfectly good goal disallowed and it's cost us the game," Hawke's Bay coach Jonathan Gould said.

"It's definitely the difference in the end and means we've ended up with one point, instead of three."

"The send off? I didn't see anything," opposite number Shane Rufer said.

"I rarely, rarely comment on referees and I won't this time, either. As for the disallowed goal, well it must have been offside."

Having gone pointless in their first two outings, Rufer was at least happy to be on the board.

"We wanted to win. We didn't, but we have improved on our first two games," he said.

"My opinion is that Auckland, Waitakere, Wellington, Hawke's Bay and ourselves are the five teams that will fight out the top three places, but the league is very, very even."

For the home side, Cole Peverley was again their best, with goalkeper Mitch O'Brien also impressive. Utting pulled off a couple of fine saves for Manawatu, while Adam Cowan was lively throughout.

Hawke's Bay are back on the road again next Sunday, this time away to Team Wellington, whle YoungHeart Manawatu return to FMG Stadium in Palmerston North to welcome Otago United.
