Bradley infuriated by Scott sin-binning

EDINBURGH head coach Michael Bradley was confused by referee Peter Allan's decision to show Matt Scott a yellow card moments before Moray Low scored the only try to give Glasgow victory at Firhill.

Home stand-off Duncan Weir and opposite number Phil Godman had kicked three penalties apiece before Scott was penalised for a dangerous tackle on Robert Harley in the 68th minute.

With Edinburgh a man down, Low drove over after a lineout a minute later to help Glasgow to a 17-12 RaboDirect PRO12 victory. Referee Allan only made the decision on the advice of assistant Andy Macpherson.

"It was a crucial decision in the game," Bradley said. "We have had a lot of possession for all of the game.

"The yellow card was decisive in terms of the balance of power.

"The referee was next to it and didn't seem to put his hand in his pocket or stop the play even, and the touch judge saw what he saw."

"The subs made a difference," said Glasgow head coach Sean Lineen, who brought on the likes of John Barclay and Scott Wight after the visitors had cancelled out Glasgow's 9-3 half-time lead.

"They upped the tempo and we got some quick ball. Matt Scott, a centre, was the one who was yellow-carded.

"I don't think he would have done anything with the drive."
