The Shocking Moment Referee Squares Up To Ipswich Town Player
There was huge controversy in the game between Ipswich Town and Northampton tonight as the referee appeared to square up to a player.
Ipswich midfielder Alan Judge was right in the face of Darren Drysdale and giving the official some abuse during the game, talking himself into a yellow card as a result.
But just before the card was brandished footage that is now going viral showed the man in the middle standing his ground against the former Notts County and Brentford man, in scenes that left fans in utter disbelief.

The two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Portman Road, with Flynns Downes sent off for the hosts in the 93rd minute.
Were the referee's actions wrong or should he be allowed to go head-to-head to a player who is abusing him?
Sound off in the comments.
