Brighton and Hove Albion boss Gus Poyet has refused to apologise to referee Steve Cook following Saturday's stormy 1-1 draw at Leyton Orient. The former Tottenham and Chelsea star was sent to the stands by the official after Cook failed to award the Seagulls a penalty. He fumed: "There are no excuses. I am open to speak to anyone but don't expect me to apologise. "You could ask even the Leyton Orient fans, that was a penalty and a red card. The referee was ten yards away and didn't give it. I was told he didn't see it. Didn't see it? He needs some glasses. "I got sent off and that is not a problem for me. All my life I have accepted responsibility for my actions - the referee didn't accept his responsibility. "He is quite young and for me it is the worst decision he has made in his career."
