Mark Gower said that Swansea City were 'due a big decision' from a referee following Saturday's 3-1 win away at Ipswich Town.
The Swans midfielder could count himself lucky not to concede a penalty when he made contact with Carlos Edwards inside the penalty area, but despite the Welshman going down, referee Andy D'Urso ignored the home side's strong claims for a spot-kick. Moments later, Craig Beattie scores to make the score 3-1.
Gower says the Swans have been on the receiving end of poor refereeing decisions for far too long and it's about time we have a decision like that go against our opposition instead of us.
'I couldn't get out of the way and he (Edwards) came across me,'
'I went back to get inside him but there's no reason for him to go down.
'I did think for a split second to tug him back, but as he was in the box I decided against it.
'He could have stayed on his feet and stick it in the net. You'd have to ask him why he didn't stay on his feet.
'There wasn't that much contact for him to go down but he chose to do that and he put it in the hands of the ref.
'Fortunately for us, he didn't give it.
'But I couldn't have complained if he had because of the angle the ref had and he (Edwards) made it look as though I hit him hard.'
'We've had some terrible decisions go against us since I've been here,' said Gower. 'It's been quite disheartening because sometimes you really need them to go for you as the teams around you always seem to get them.
'We were due a big decision like this for the past two years and you see the difference it makes in a game.
'It's nice to be on the end of one that goes our way and celebrate a win rather than seeing the possibility of victory snatched away from us.'
