Saints Boss George Burley was not a happy man with Referre Mike Pike after Saints 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Burley felt that Saints were hard done by and that the Baggies should have had atleast the goalkeeper sent off. Burley also claimed after the game that Dein Keily the goalkeeper in question admitted to hand balling outside his area in the second half. Burley revealed that Keily had told saints keeper Kelvin Davis that he DID handle ball outside his box “As the two (Keily & Davis) of them came off he (Keily) admitted he handled the ball outside the box”

“It was a clear hand ball and when I asked the referee he said, ‘If I made a mistake, then I made a mistake.` I feel very hard done by not to be going home with the three points. West Bromwich Albion are a very good side with some very talented players but I thought we won the game.”
