Coppell Slams Referee Foy

Coppell Slams Referee Foy

Reading boss Steve Coppell was left highly disappointed with Chris Foy`s decision not to hand the Royals a penalty.

Coppell was bitterly disappointed with the decision despite not seeing the incident himself:

'I didn't really get a good view, but there was such a clamour from the crowd there must have been something in it.

'I always say that if the arm is in an unnatural position and it hits the hand, it's a foul and a penalty

'On this occasion it seems that Gavin Mahon had his hand up above his shoulder - in an unnatural position - but the ref's not given it and we're not moaning.

'He was particularly hot on any handballs that took place in the middle of the park, but not that one.'


With a fleeting penalty appeal Reading`s only major talking point throughout the game, it epitomised the way Rangers took the game to their opponents, limiting the opportunity for attacking threat:

'Our delivery from wide positions was not as good as it has been,' Coppell continued:

'We had a lot of crosses and corners, a lot of things flashing across the goal, but our delivery and movement wasn't as sharp as it might have been.

'There were loads of things we could have done better - but we had a genuine desire to attack and score goals, so I've got to be pleased with that.'


He admitted that QPR battled hard for possession of the ball, and thought that they didn`t let Reading play:

'QPR made it hard, like all teams will here.

'We'll have people coming here and trying to stop us playing, and then it depends on our key players to win their match-ups and individual battles.

'Today we came up against a back eight, nine if you include the keeper, who were well organised and knew what to do.'

How can you criticise the ref when you didn't see it clearly?! If you're going on the basis of your supporters shouting loudly - which admittedly they didn't do much of - then you've got problems.
