Coleman & Keane disagree over officials

Time added on at the end of Coventry City's 3-2 defeat to Ipswich Town provided two goals, a dramatic finish and a marked disagreement between the respective managers over the officials' performance.

Claiming that too much time had already been played when his side equalised through Richard Wood, Chris Coleman fumed: 'Just because he's made a mistake in letting us get an equaliser he didn't need to make another one to even it up.

'Two wrongs don't make a right.'

Opposite number Roy Keane meanwhile, from the safety of seeing his men pick up three points when they looked to have surrendered a vital win, commented: 'When they say four minutes it's a minimum of four minutes.

'Even if the game had finished 2-2 I wouldn't have been complaining about the officials - far from it.

'I've said it before but you play to the whistle. I've been taught that since I was six or seven years of age.

'Anyone who's going to complain about that is out of order.'
