Mowbray mystified by red card

Published Add your comment

Middlesbrough manager Tony Mowbray criticised referee Carl Boyeson for being "too clever for his own good" as he controversially dismissed Barry Robson at the end of a 2-0 defeat to Leeds.

The game was lost by half-time, Robert Snodgrass firing underneath Jason Steele in the 18th minute and Luciano Becchio converting Ross McCormack's cross following a mistake by Justin Hoyte.

But Boyeson ruled against Robson after a tangle of arms and legs with Leeds' Adam Clayton, the latter receiving only a yellow card for his part in it and Mowbray said: "I think it was one of those scenarios where the referee was trying to be too clever for his own good."
