Davies suffers for Clattenburg `history` - Jaaskelainen

07 February 2010 04:59
Bolton goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen believes Kevin Davies' reputation may have gone before him after the Wanderers skipper was denied a late winner against Fulham. Davies thought he had settled a dreary Barclays Premier League contest at the Reebok Stadium when he headed home from a Lee Chung-Yong free-kick in the last minute. But referee Mark Clattenburg saw differently and penalised the Trotters striker for a push on defender Brede Hangeland that few other observers saw. Davies is renowned for his physicality and Jaaskelainen fears that is counting against him, particularly with Clattenburg, who has booked the forward four times this season alone. Jaaskelainen said: "I was extremely disappointed to see Davo's goal disallowed. The referee said he had put two hands on the defender but his hands were down when he headed the ball. "I think the referee has a history with him, if you look at his last few games. It's one of those things that goes against you but if we keep going as we are, especially the way we played in the second half, then we will get three points more often than not."
