Poyet fury over penalty call

Published Add your comment

Brighton boss Gus Poyet hit out at the performance of referee Lee Mason and labelled Neil Warnock "a hypocrite" after his side's winless run was extended to seven games in a 2-2 draw against Leeds.

Referee Mason penalised Bruno for a push on Luke Varney which led to El-Hadji Diouf scoring from the spot but Poyet was adamant the Leeds man had taken a dive. He also claimed that midfielder Michael Brown, booked early on for a foul, should have been sent off later in the game.

"The referee was too nice," said the Uruguayan. "He gave a penalty that was not and also kept a player on the pitch who should not have been there, and who then scored the equaliser."
