Low Poll rating for Graham

Low Poll rating for Graham

World Cup referee Graham Poll drew criticism from both managers after Coventry City drew 2-2 against Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Sky Blues had two late goals disallowed and caretaker boss Adrian Heath said: 'I don't really want to talk about Graham Poll's performance otherwise I will get into trouble.

'Let's just say that I thought it was inconsistent and I could not see anything wrong with the second disallowed goal.'

Cardiff were reduced to ten men after a second yellow card for Glenn Loovens and their manager Dave Jones commented: 'If anything we were going to go on and score a third but the sending-off changed all of that and gave them hope.

'The second booking was deserved as it was a lazy challenge on Michael Mifsud, but the card in the first half was harsh - but then you never know what you are going to get with Graham [Poll].'

Poll was garbage (as normal and just like he was when we were in the Prem) but how does Jones reckon he was gonna win that game? Cov were all over you till the last 10 mins when we stopped playing properly. 3 times the ball was in the net and it didn't count and we hit the post to see the ball roll along the line! 2 points dropped to the damn Welsh by the Sky Blues.
