The Latics boss is without midfielder Jason Koumas for Saturday´s trip to Blackburn after he was sent off five minutes into last week´s relegation clash with Bolton, while Chelsea´s Ashley Cole was only booked for a similar one-footed lunge on Tottenham´s Alan Hutton on Wednesday.
"I felt for Jason because I think the referees need clarity," he said. "We saw the challenge on Wednesday night by Ashley Cole that got a yellow card and, for me, that was a worse challenge than Jason´s."
