Dickie: I Wasn't Acting in Stamp Incident
Monday, 24th Feb 2020 09:50

Oxford United skipper Rob Dickie insists he wasn’t acting in the incident late on during his side's 1-0 victory over the Blues at Portman Road which saw Town striker Kayden Jackson red-carded for a stamp.

The Blues frontman, who was celebrating his 26th birthday, was dismissed in injury time after the linesman advised referee Scott Oldham that Jackson had trodden on Dickie in the wake of a foul.

The Town joint-top scorer protested his innocence with Dickie and the official before making his way off the field and slamming the tunnel in frustration.

“He’s a good player, but he’s cost his side – not today, but I take it he’s got a three-game ban now,” Dickie said.

“You can’t stamp on people. I’m not acting or anything, when you get hit or he stamps on you it hurts. I guess you could take it as a compliment.”

After the game Town manager Paul Lambert said he hadn't seen the incident and would look at it before deciding whether the Blues would appeal.

Central defender Dickie admitted it wasn’t his team’s prettiest performance but felt that the result came at an ideal point in his side’s season, putting them up to ninth, a point behind the Blues.

“We have had games where we’ve played a lot better, but I’d agree, the timing of this result has been really good for us to put us right back in the mix ahead of our run-in,” he reflected.

“We’ll still strive to play the way we want to, but sometimes when you come away from home it’s not always possible against a big club like this.”

He added: “It’s a brilliant result, the perfect away win. It’s one we’ve been waiting for all season, a nasty, ugly 1-0 win away from home.”

Despite Town dominating the first half, Dickie felt his team’s goal was never under siege: “I wouldn’t say we were under the cosh at all.

“The manager said to us at half-time they were 1-0 down in their last game and ended up winning 4-1.

“So we were aware of the threat they held, but we’re a really good side and we’re so proud of ourselves for the way we dug in.”

Sorry mate, your behaviour at the end was a disgrace, shouting at the ref like a giant baby

He's not wrong, pure idiocy from Jackson.

Though Dickie and Moore were outstanding for Oxford at the weekend, proper Central Defenders.

Dickie was a disgrace all game. Rolling around at the slightest of touches and then shooting up to his feet right away to shout at ref when he didn't get his desired outcome. Happened 3/4 times, very embarrassing. Don't know why refs allow players to try and deceive them like that

Although from what I saw, Jackson did seem to intentionally stand on him that time, even if the reaction was way overboard.

Considering he claims it hurt he got up easily enough and went running after the assistant referee.

I see he doesn’t mention going down every time someone was in his general vicinity - were you being sincere then, Dickie?

PL needs to INSIST all his players just get on with the game , stop berating the officials ( it is very unlikely to change things in your favour ) and focus 100% on their own and our game : take the frustration out by effecting better play and actually protecting the defence by scoring at the other end !
Regular highlights expose the fragilities and emphasise the paucity ,and poor speed of thought ; are some of our players simply not up to the intellectual challenges ?
Changes to the squad will be needed whether we go up or not .

He wasn't hurt. It was a push rather than stamp. Still an obvious red though.

Lying tw*t
If he wasn't acting how can he roll around on the ground injured and then leap up and walk after the ref.
Of course he was acting.

Dickie , I wasn't acting , I was cheating. You deserve an Oscar.

Yer pretty much a red but he did lay it on a bit . Chambers was just as stupid as well he should have gone .

Sir_Bob added 13:03 - Feb 24
Dickie is lying.....He says ''Jackson's a good player''!!!

NorthLondonBlue2 added 13:55 - Feb 24
You can see on the video highlights that Jackson appeared to kick him. I suspect Jackson admitted to doing it hence no appeal.

Poor game, poor performance and no pro should lose control like that. He will be targeted in future to get that reaction, too.

Looking forward to Sears getting more than 60 seconds of game-time now!

He didn't look very hurt to me. Usual play acting.

good news may be the scottish dip will plays sears.

Lying git, he was at it all game, the fact is when you are hurt you stay still you dont roll around!

One thing i am proud of as an ipswich fan is our players dont roll around pretending to be hurt to get players sent off! I am embarrassed by many things at our team at the moment,but i am glad we dont have to suffer the embarrassment of powder puffs who cheat!

I've never seen a big centre half playact so much. Maybe it was a foul but I can understand Jackson feeling aggrieved. Doesn't help our season, though I agree, Sears is being totally insulted with the time he gets on the pitch. In the words of King Kev, I'd luv it if he scored a hat trick on Saturday, luv it.

Wish Jackson had done what Ryan Babel did recently and showed this cheat up for what he is.

roystevensonsrocket added 15:11 - Feb 25
Does it matter if he was laying it on a bit . 95pc of players would lay it on thick if trodden on to get a red card . Jackson was a stupid prick and has damaged our prospects greatly
