Warnock unhappy with Styles

21 Aug 2006 - 09:15:15

Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock was less than impressed after seeing his side denied a win at home to Liverpool by a controversial penalty decision.

Robbie Fowler levelled from the spot 20 minutes from time after Reds skipper Steven Gerrard was adjudged to have been fouled by Blades defender Chris Morgan.

However, Warnock felt that referee Rob Styles had got the decision all wrong.

He said: "I didn't think it was a penalty. There was no contact.

"Apparently the ref has said there was intent, so that means there are going to be a lot of free-kicks given if there's intent but no contact.

"But I think Liverpool know they are fortunate because 95 pr cent of people associated with the game would not have given a penalty.

"Unfortunately, one of the five per cent was wearing black and it was his decision and we have to accept it.

"If Rob Styles felt it was a penalty, then he should also have booked Morgan, that would have made it a second booking and a sending-off."
