Only just seen this but manager Ian Holloway has given a true to himself response to our denied penalty against Bolton, and also talked about the January window.

In quotes carried by News Shopper the gaffer had said after the game about the penalty.

‘If that’s not a foul on Gregory then he should have been booked for diving. I just can’t believe it, it was so clear to everyone, even Bolton’s bench. In fairness they’re chuffed but they know that should have been ten men and a penalty. Do me a favour, book my man for diving or send their keeper off, don’t just wave your hands in the air and play on.’

Holloway added that it was obviously very difficult to take because had the referee awarded the penalty and the red card that it completely changes the ‘complexion’ of the game.

As for January plans after having his little vent, he says that at the start of the campaign January looked like a month where he’d try and do a bit of ‘nip and tuck’ with the side, but now it’s looking more of a case of ‘major surgery’ given our form and results.

‘We promised so much at the start of the year but I’m going to have to look at January and try to get some new people in to deal with this. I can’t wait for summer, we’ve got to do that now. We need some pace. What I want for Christmas is some pace.’
