Lewis Page saw red for Greyhound in their 2-1 extra-time win against Walcot in the Swindon Sunday League Knockout Cup, but it wasn’t for this tackle.

The tough-tackling Greyhound man was booked for a later challenge and got his second yellow card for dissent.

But this tackle was waved on by the referee, who had a perfect view of it.

So what do you think? Was this tackle a foul or just a good old fashioned hard tackle?

In a fiercely-contested cup semi-final match, it took extra-time to separate Greyhound and Walcot.

And despite being reduced to 10 men it was Greyhound who reached the final where they will play AFC Gas.

Glenn Armstrong gave Greyhound the lead in the second-half when he headed home at the far post from Rory Sproule’s fine cross.

But late on Walcot levelled when Dean Hughes nicked in at the far post to slot home and force extra-time.

Page was then sent off for Greyhound, picking up a second booking for dissent, but Walcot could not make the extra man tell.

In the end it was Danny Cole who scored the crucial goal to send Greyhound into the final.
