Allardyce to lodge ref complaint

19 September 2010 02:00
Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce will make his displeasure at match official Anthony Taylor known to Premier League referees chiefs after his side were held at home by Fulham. Allardyce claimed Blackburn should have been awarded two penalties and that visiting goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer should have been sent off for handling outside the area. Taylor, the subject of criticism from Sunderland boss Steve Bruce earlier this season, also got it in the neck from Fulham manager Mark Hughes for allowing Chris Samba's goal for Blackburn despite a clear push by El Hadji Diouf. Allardyce said: "The only person that made the game difficult was the referee. It was not a tough game to referee but he made both managers, both sets of players and both sets of fans angry. "It's my job to point out those things and I will do that through the correct channels this week."
