Coventry boss on referee 'nightmare'

Coventry boss on referee 'nightmare'

Coventry City manager Chris Coleman pinned the blame for his side's defeat on Saturday firmly at the feet (or hands) of referee Phil Dowd.

'It was disappointing, traumatic, frustrating,' he raged.

'And it was all caused by the referee's first-half performance, which affected the result.

'We should have had a free-kick for their first goal. Then, I thought it was a penalty on Clinton Morrison.

'Dowd has had an absolute nightmare and he will get away with it.'

It is time that refs like this nut got punished, and while should Coleman get a ban it is results like this that can cost a manager his job at the end of the season.
