FANS are demanding Luton striker Carlton Morris is banned for a “deliberate dive” which left Middlesbrough goalie Zack Steffen mouthing “f***ing hell.”
The controversial incident occurred in last night’s top-end Championship clash.
Fans are demanding Carlton Morris is banned for appearing to dive against Middlesbrough
The striker’s resulting penalty saw Luton win 2-1 against their Championship rivals
Third-place Luton pulled four points clear of the visitors thanks to a 2-1 win at Kenilworth Road.
Cameron Archer put Boro ahead before Tom Lockyer equalised for the hosts early in the second half.
But the biggest moment of the game came in the 67th minute when Luton striker Morris dribbled towards Boro stopper Steffen.
As the American came rushing out, Morris attempted to dribble around him.
The forward then took a tumble before falling to the ground, despite not having been touched by Steffen.
But instead of giving Boro the free-kick and Morris a yellow card, ref Graham Scott decided to reward Luton with a penalty.
Steffen couldn’t believe the decision, and visibly moaned: “F***ing hell mate.”
But Morris didn’t care as he stepped up to the spot before slotting home what turned out to be the winning goal.
Fans were left incensed however, with many claiming Morris deserves a retrospective ban heading into the playoffs for Premier League promotion.
One said “Carlton Morris needs to have a ban for that. Shocking dive, how the ref fell for that I’ll never know.”
Another declared: “Ban him for all the play-offs.”
One noted: “To stamp out cheating like that shameful dive, there simply has to be a retrospective ban in place.”
Another added: “Carlton Morris should get a two game ban for that. Disgraceful.”
