Dowie: I didn't swear at the ref

Dowie: I didn't swear at the ref

'I thought both the players' red cards were soft,' was the verdict of Coventry City manager Iain Dowie after some controversial decisions in the 1-0 defeat to West Brom.

'(Ben) Turner has gone in on Kevin Phillips and it is a booking. But a red card? And why does he have to send Kamara off?'

Dowie was also banished to the stands but added: 'There was a blatant kick on Micky Doyle off the ball which the referee missed so I called out to the ref 'talk to me'.

'But he just turned his back and so I told him 'you cannot show that arrogance'. For that, I have been sent to the stand and there was not one swear-word used.'
