O'Neill slams Cattermole for dismissal

Published Add your comment

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill blasted captain Lee Cattermole for getting sent off in his side's 2-0 Capital One Cup success over MK Dons.

The Black Cats progress to round four courtesy of two fantastic second-half goals from Craig Gardner and James McClean but it was the dismissal of Cattermole that left O'Neill with a bitter taste in his mouth.

O'Neill felt his skipper gave referee Stuart Attwell little choice but to send him off for a first-half lunge on young MK Dons full-back Adam Chicksen. He said: "From the minute you start lunging in you are giving the referee no option. It looked from the sideline that the referee had no option."
