Ref decisions disappoint Jedinak

first_img As it turned out neither were given and Steven Fletcher put the Black Cats ahead before the break and, despite Palace drawing level courtesy of a Wes Brown own goal, Jordi Gomez and Fletcher struck either side of Jedinak’s red card to seal a second Barclays Premier League win of the campaign. “I think we gave them two soft goals,” said Jedinak. ” Apart from that I thought we were really good. “I think they (the penalty claims) were both pretty clear to be honest with you, so, there’s not a lot I’m going to comment on in that sense, but he (Dowd) made both decisions and we have taken the brunt of them. It was unfortunate – both times. “It’s disappointing when you don’t receive the decisions and particularly so early on, particularly when you’re on top. You’re not going to cry over that, but when they are that obvious it’s a little bit difficult.” The defeat saw Palace drop to 17th in the table, with only a better goal record keeping Neil Warnock’s side outside of the relegation zone. The 65-year-old revealed after the match that Jedinak had apologised for his sending off and labelled the two bookings as “silly” – with the Australia midfielder now ruled out of Saturday’s trip to Manchester United. “He (Dowd) decided to give me a yellow on the first one which for whatever reason, the second one I got caught in him it looked like he was right behind me and he’s deemed it a yellow card,” Jedinak added. “I’ve got to accept that now, I’m disappointed within myself to be missing the game and not being a part (of it) with the boys on Saturday. Press Association “We’ve got a game in five days’ time, everybody has got to be ready and prepared. It’s an opportunity for somebody else to step in and whoever is fit and available to be ready and I think the boys are going to give a good account of themselves. I have no doubt about that.” The win at Selhurst Park was Sunderland’s second of the season and manager Gus Poyet will be hoping the result banishes the embarrassment of an 8-0 thrashing at Southampton two weeks ago. Gomez grabbed his first league goal for the Wearsiders since his summer move from Wigan and the Spaniard is hoping to build on the victory when they welcome Everton to the Stadium of Light on Sunday. “It’s a very good result for us,” he said. “It was much needed and it’s an important three points on the board. I’m very happy to get my goal but more so with the team performance and final result. “We’re now looking forward to playing at home on Sunday in front of the fans, turn in another performance and get another three points. “Our fans were brilliant. It has been tough for them lately after the last two results but they backed us in their numbers and they deserve to enjoy this result, they are very important for us and did us proud here.” One downside on the evening for Sunderland was a shoulder injury suffered by Van Aanholt during his challenge with Zaha. The former Chelsea full-back was taken straight to hospital and Poyet confirmed after the match that the Dutchman had suffered a dislocation. Mile Jedinak admits it is becoming difficult for Crystal Palace players to come to terms with recent refereeing decisions which have gone against the club. The Eagles’ skipper was sent off in the 3-1 reverse to Sunderland on Monday night after seeing his side have two legitimate penalty claims turned away by referee Phil Dowd. Santiago Vergini was lucky to avoid conceding a first-minute penalty when he brought down Fraizer Campbell, with Patrick van Aanholt tangling with Wilfried Zaha in what could have been easily given as a spot-kick. last_img read more

Cricket News Indian cricket team ready to counter ‘tall Australia bowlers’ in their own conditions: Rohit Sharma

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Australia is currently suffering a slump in their fortunes in all three formats. Their batting has been robbed of Steve Smith and David Warner who are banned for a year while their confidence is at an all-time low following the ball-tampering scandal. On top of that, their next encounter is against Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team, who are high on confidence. However, Rohit Sharma, speaking to reporters during the practice session in Brisbane ahead of the first Twenty20 International on November 21, has said Australia’s tall pace bowlers pose a challenge in these conditions but India is ready to counter it.Read More | Maninder Singh’s advice to India in Australia: Read conditions well“India has always played either at Perth (venue for second Test from December 14-18 this time) or Brisbane. These two conditions are challenging and the Australians have tall bowlers who exploit those conditions and use it to their advantage. Indian batsman are generally not that tall, so it is not easy for us but the guys are determined to change things this time, we are ready to accept the challenge. Most of the guys have come to Australia before. So they understand the conditions. As a batting unit, we are prepared,” Rohit stated.Read More | Virat Kohli’s India side have golden chance to break Australia jinxThe Australian pace battery for the Test series will feature the fast-bowling trio of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood. Cummins is 1.92 meters tall while Starc and Hazlewood are 1.96 meters. In the last series played in Australia which was the Ashes in 2017/18 against England, the trio had a magnificent time as they used the conditions brilliantly. Cummins finished with 23 wickets, Starc with 22 and Hazlewood with 21 as Australia won the series 4-0.Leave our mark in AustraliaIndia has endured a tough time when it comes to overseas tours. In 2011/12, they were whitewashed 4-0 in both England and Australia. In 2014/15, they lost 1-0 to South Africa and New Zealand, 1-3 to England and 0-2 to Australia. However, Rohit said the team wants to do well Down Under and added in the last series that India put up a good fight which is not reflected in the score-line.Read More | Shastri questions India’s ‘poor travellers’ tag ahead of series “Australia is one place where we want to leave our mark and do well as a unit. Last time we played a Test series here, although we lost two games and drew two, but I thought we played few close games, especially at Brisbane. We want to make it count this time around, there is a real good feeling inside the group. The motive is to seize all the moments and win. When you do well in Australia, you feel good as a team and thinking about the World Cup ahead, it can only give you confidence winning here,” Rohit said.Read More | ‘Sensible decisions key for Indian team’s success in Australia’Rohit has enjoyed playing limited-overs cricket in Australia, averaging over 57 and in the last series in 2016, he blasted 171 in Perth. The right-hander said the good bounce and pace allows him to play his natural game.“I had a good time playing white ball cricket here. In places like Brisbane and Perth, the good bounce allows me to play my game because I have grown up playing on cement pitches back home. I have done well in limited overs here but the challenge obviously is red-ball cricket which right now I am not thinking of, just want to do well in T20 format and take it forward where we go,” Rohit added.India start their two-month tour of Australia with three Twenty20 Internationals, with the first match on November 21 at The Gabba. The T20Is will be followed by four Tests beginning in Adelaide on December 6 while the tour ends with three ODIs. last_img read more
