Cox: 'It Wasn't A Penalty'

Cox: 'It Wasn't A Penalty'

On-loan Swindon Town striker Simon Cox said the referee got the decision wrong to award them a late penalty in yesterday's game.

Kristian O'Leary was adjudged to have brought the Reading player down in the penalty box but Cox told the Swindon Advertiser:

'I wanted the penalty, Hasney did and Billy did but it came to me and I had to do the business. It was not a penalty. I just kept it in and fell over. I think the ref tried squaring it up after missing the Hasney shout. I think if I fell over it was pretty much a penalty.'

'We should have had Swindon dead and buried long before injury time '
Cox's views sums up what Swansea captain Garry Monk thought of the referee, branding him a disgrace for trying to balance out the decisions after giving Corr a red card in the first half.

Still, the Swans should have been comfortably ahead against 10 men and only have themselves to blame for not putting themselves in a comfortable lead.

These type of decisions usually balance out over the season, I have not seen that quote in the Swindon Advertiser. We are proud that our team of 10 men, after a having a goal scored against them in the 87 minute did not give up.

i think it was a pen actually. ball wasn't won, contact from oleary and player goes to ground, can't argue much with that.
