Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce discusses his thoughts on our defeat at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday with Sky Sports.
Allardyce believes that Rovers were denied two clear penalties that didn't help us in the 3-1 defeat and found the disallowed goal from Nikola Kalinic strange to understand.
Allardyce told Sky Sports: "If you look at the decisions made today against Blackburn Rovers by Howard Webb, the first one I think is the most blatant, the tackle by (Vedran) Corluka on (David) Dunn, he goes straight across the ball and gets the player.
"I then feel (Sebastien) Bassong is all over (Christopher) Samba on the long throw, so we were looking at at least one penalty first half, if not two.
"We then get the best goal of the day ruled out for a so-called handball. For me it's not handball, it's hit him on the arm. If you look at it again he can't even see where the ball is because (Michael) Dawson has hit him in the back."
Big Sam realises that it probably wouldn't have altered the result in the end (the disallowed goal), however, he was happy with how we played but bemoaned the goals that we gifted Tottenham.
He added: "I think we played a really good game.
"It's always important to see your players play well and I think we have played well. But I think we have to look at ourselves and look at our defending on the goals and say if we do the basics correctly.
"It's not Tottenham's great ability it's our poor defending that has cost us the game."
