Detailed Report of Incident
#33 had recently returned to the pitch after a brief suspension for an attempted trip.

Greenwich was attacking through the centers around midfield and a flat, high pass allowed Mr. Preston to square up the receiver. His initial contact was legal however he took the ball carrier off his feet. At this point the onus was on Mr. Preston to return the ball carrier safely to the ground and I deemed he did not fulfil this responsibility as the ball carrier was brought straight to his back.

The tackle did not appear to be reckless or malicious, only unsafe and one of a number of dangerous tackle penalties for his side; for this he would have earned a yellow card however with a previous booking the second yellow resulted in a red card.
