Wolves winner angers Coleman

Wolves winner angers Coleman

Coventry City manager Chris Coleman was left unconvinced by the referee's explanation for allowing Wolves' winning goal at Molineux on Sunday.

'The referee is saying the momentum takes Ebanks-Blake off the pitch so when he re-enters he is not offside. If he is offside then he is offside - end of story,' said Coleman after Wolves striker Ebanks-Blake came back on to the field of play to head the winner.

'He comes on behind our defender and nods the ball in the back of the net. If he comes back onto the pitch then he has surely got to come back on in an onside position.

'I don't know where that rule came from, apparently that's the rule and the referee is sticking to it. We're disappointed with that.'
