Derrick Williams feels Bristol City should have been awarded a second-half penalty in last night’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.
With the scores tied at 1-1, Luke Freeman went down under the challenge of Uwe Huenemeier and was booked for diving by referee Iain Williamson.
Replays have since shown the midfielder was hard done by and Williams was certain that a spot-kick should have been given by the official.
“I thought it was a bad call from the referee,” he told Bristol City Player HD.
“He (Freeman) did so well to chop and there was definitely contact. I was even celebrating when the ref blew his whistle because I was so certain it was a penalty.
“But we have to get on with it and get over this loss quickly, go forward to Cardiff (on Monday) and be positive again. We believe we can get the three points there.”
Former City skipper Sam Baldock and Brighton legend Bobby Zamora won the game for the hosts following Williams’ 17th-minute opener.
The defender ghosted into the area to fire a finely-taken volley into the bottom corner and revealed it is something manager Steve Cotterill has urged him to add to his game.
“The gaffer tells me and Joe Bryan to get up there,” he said.
“I’ve seen Joe score a lot of goals so I’m just trying to get myself in there, time it right and not do unnecessary running.
“When there’s Jimmy and Benno you know it’s going to go in the box and you just need to take that chance sometimes.
“I thought Alby (Aaron Wilbraham) was going to go for it so I shouted and tried to get a connection because a lot of times you can swing and miss it on those ones.
