Mowbray bites his tongue

19 Feb 2007 - 12:09:10

West Bromwich Albion Tony Mowbray has refused to criticise referee Howard Webb after he sent off Curtis Davies during the 2-2 FA Cup fifth round draw at Middlesbrough.

Davies was dismissed late on in the game at the Riverside for pulling back Mark Viduka and, although Mowbray didn't agree with the decision, he stopped short of laying into Webb.

He told the club's official website: "I get asked every week what I think about this or that decision, but it doesn't matter what I think.

"I know Curtis Davies. I train and work with him everyday and he's the most honest boy you'll ever meet.

"He doesn't need to use physicality because he's a gazelle. He's an athlete who can run and doesn't need to get hold of people.

"But I'm not here to criticise the referee. I thought Mr Webb had a decent game.

"The biggest frustration and disappointment for me is we've lost Curtis for Tuesday when we need to keep winning league games.

"Curtis has been a big, big reason why we've been winning matches. We're going to miss him and that is a frustration."
