Coyle furious over Cahill dismissal

Published Add your comment

Bolton manager Owen Coyle launched into an angry tirade against Stuart Attwell after the referee's controversial decision to send off Gary Cahill cost his team dearly in Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Tottenham.

With his team already 1-0 down, Coyle watched on in dismay as Attwell showed a straight red card to Cahill for bringing down Scott Parker on the left flank just over the halfway line in the 17th minute. Attwell judged that Cahill had denied a clear goalscoring opportunity even though Bolton had plenty of cover in the box.

"To say I am angry about it is a bit of an understatement," said Coyle.
