'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Manager Says-Shef U 0:0 Burnley

Steve Cotterill had plenty to say about the two disallowed goals one for each side following the hard earned point away to Sheffield United

'I have seen the two incidents and in my opinion ours is a goal and theirs isn't.

'I know (United manager) Bryan Robson will differ, but David's is definitely not a foul, while their lad is all over Jon Harley.

'What I would say is that you don't always get them as an away team and, hand on heart, when I first saw theirs, I hoped it was a foul.

'Down at that end it was a brave decision by the referee, but he has just disallowed one of ours that was a perfectly good goal.

'Those incidents will take care of the match reports, but to be fair in the second half we were the better team and we deserved to win the game.

The gaffer also commented on our first clean sheet in nine matches but was disappointed we couldnt get more from the match

'I think we would have taken the clean sheet before kick off, but with hindsight we are a tinge disappointed that we haven't taken all three.

'I thought we created numerous chances and the second half performance warranted all three points.'

'We are have had quite a few clean sheet with the injuries, but I thought the whole team was first class.

'They were committed and ran their socks off and one or two got blood on their shirts.

'That always tells a tale.'

Was it a goal or not? Shame it wasn't for us owls, if i was the ref i would have certainly given it!!
will it ever happen
After getting a good result at Sheffield United you must have been disappointed to lose at home to Hull. I have always liked Cotterill looking in from the outside and you have only been losing games by the odd goal. Sad to see him go.
