'Leggy' Sky Blues fall to Blades

Chris Coleman was fuming over Sheffield United's first goal on Wednesday night, but admitted his side had dipped below their recent standards in the 2-1 defeat.

'I have seen it again and again and he isn't even in line with the ball and there are players in front of him so his view is obstructed,' he roared, after Leigh Bromby's striker was ruled to have crossed the line.

'Unless he is 100% sure - 100% sure - that the ball is over the line he can't give that.

'And there is no way he is 100% sure and I'll tell you why - it is because the ball is not over the line.'

Overall though, Coleman admitted: 'It doesn't disguise the fact that we didn't play well.

'We were slow in our decision making and looked a bit leggy and lacked impetus, especially offensively.'
