Chris Forrester didn't reach the half-way mark in tonight's Peterborough game in Barnsley. He was sent off after 38 minutes following a 'dispute' with fellow Irish player Conor Hourihane.
Both players received a yellow card after squaring up in the course of a mass pushing and shoving match. Forrester, however, had already collected a yellow card.

The internet currently boasts only one video of the incident, thanks to Peterborough United head of media and ticketing Chris Brewer.
His wholly unbiased view is that Hourihane provoked the incident by standing on Forrester's foot.
The video only captures the players from the chest down so it's difficult to ascertain the precise nature of the offence that saw Forrester banished. Hourihane hit the ground.
Barnsley won the match 1-0.
