FINISHED the match on the bench but with a big smile on his face.

The 23-year-old midfield creator backed Grand National winner Amberleigh House to the tune of £20 each way and was trying to work out his winnings as Town headed for home.

"It's a great battling point for us and an excellent win for me on the National," said Schofield, beaming all over his face.

"We had to battle all the way to get something out of the game, but the lads produced the goods once again.

"I don't like slagging off referees, but he was really awful.

"The players knew it, the fans knew it - both sets of them - and the gaffer and Taff knew it as well.

"I didn't see what happened with Pav's sending off because we were getting ready to take a free-kick, but Boothy's dismissal was ridiculous.

"When the ref gave the free-kick against him, all he said was `that's rubbish' and the next thing he is being booked and sent-off. We just couldn't believe it."

Schofield created a couple of good scoring chances for Booth, one of which the striker turned against a post in the 48th minute.

"We worked hard as a team and well deserved to take something out of the game," he added.

"It made it all worthwhile when we got back in the changing rooms and heard the other results.

"We are still nicely in third place and looking to take three points off Southend on Saturday."
