Everton were furious after Brighton’s Kayleigh Green escaped being sent off despite being booked twice.
Referee Lucy Oliver — wife of Premier League ref Michael — showed Green a second yellow card in the 80th minute but failed to display a red.
Everton boss Willie Kirk said: ‘It shouldn’t happen. The player knew. She was not wanting to go near the referee.’

An investigation at Arsenal as yet another injury crisis hits. Seven players are sidelined, making it the third year in a row that the Gunners have suffered this kind of problem.
‘There is an internal review that we are doing because it’s something that has crept up on us,’ boss Joe Montemurro admitted last week.
One season is unfortunate, two unlucky, but three is concerning.

A reminder of the divide between men’s and women’s football. Watford defender Renee Hector voiced despair last week at a wait of more than 12 months for an anterior crucial ligament reconstruction.
‘May as well hang up the boots. Football is nothing but heartache,’ the former Spurs player tweeted.
Surely Watford, whose accounts show earnings of £147million, can step in?
Arsenal seem far less keen than most to parade their talents. Only rights-holding broadcasters have been allowed into their home games at Meadow Park, unlike other WSL sides who have also accommodated the written press.
Yet the same ground has press to cover Borehamwood men’s side in the National League.
The decision was taken to allow reporters in this weekend, though this was not communicated to some who had repeatedly asked.

West Ham’s limited-edition pink shirt, worn for the match against Manchester United yesterday, is a class item.
The team are using it through October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, in support of Breast Cancer Now, who will receive all profits from sales.
The club are the first in the WSL to make such a gesture.
