Holloway Irate at Fourth Official

Ian Holloway is blaming one man for Coventry's equaliser last night, and that's the fourth official.

The Blackpool manager was sent to the stands for remonstrating with the linesman after City had made it 1-1 from a corner; a corner where the Seasiders only had 10 men defending because they weren't allowed to bring Matt Phillips on for the injured Ian Evatt.

The event changed the game, and Ollie is livid with how it panned out.

'The fella (fourth official) was given the card, he put the numbers in the board and the referee allowed the corner to be taken,' he said.

'I was saying at the time, you can't do that, it's my centre-half, please get him on. It should have been allowed to be done.

'So when they scored, ironically where Matt Phillips would have stood, I went 'why didn't you let me put him on!' And then I get sent to the stand.'

Holloway continued: 'The referee is in control of the overall situation, he has told me what he felt was the truth.

'I've waited (30 minutes after the final whistle) and now I've been told something that, in my opinion, wasn't true.

'What I was told was not accurate, at all.

'There's only one person to blame in my honest opinion and the person who's on the side (the fourth official) doing his job should have done it. We did our job, my kit man gave him the number and he's already got them on his board, he's now saying that he didn't.'

After conceding a second goal - which looked like condemning Pool to a second defeat in four days - it looked like game over but midfielder Keith Southern popped up with a crucial headed equaliser in stoppage time.

As for Holloway, you would expect he faces a fine and a likely ban.
