Jones incensed by Hendrie

Jones incensed by Hendrie

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones was absolutely incensed by the incident leading to Stephen McPhail`s second red card of the season. Jones claimed that Hendrie overacted in an attempt to get the Irishman sent off:


'You can't do what Stephen did but the way he (Hendrie) went down I thought he'd been hit by a sledgehammer. The boy's got to take a long, hard look at himself because he went down as if he'd been poleaxed.
'That's part of the game we're trying to stop. I'd rather Stephen be sent off for giving him a right good right hook if I'm going to lose him for three games."
"That's the way I felt because that is not acceptable in football. It shouldn't be allowed.'

Jones` anger boiled over on the pitch but he was no more calm after the game, Jones comments may land him in trouble with the F.A. but the comments mostly directed at Hendrie and not the referee means action is less likely to be taken:
'Hendrie's lucky that I haven't given him a good right hook!"

Lee Hendrie denied any part and insisted that he was caught by McPhail`s fist, he also denied any accusation of spitting levied by Dave Jones:

'I have no idea why he thinks I did that. It`s just what he said to me and that is what really riled me."
'He's got his opinions and I've got mine but I know I didn't spit at anyone.'
Hendrie did state that he didn`t think that McPhail intented to catch him, making his dramatic fall a little more suspect but Cardiff City are now considering appealing against the automatic 3 match ban for violent conduct.
