Kean blames refereeing decisions for Rovers' collapse in draw
STEVE Kean believes his side were robbed of maximum points at Leeds this afternoon by two refereeing blunders.
The Rovers boss was left disappointed after seeing his side lose a two goal lead to draw 3-3 and insists referee Neil Swarbrick played a big part.
After Marcus Olsson and Nuno Gomes had fired Rovers into a 2-0 lead, Kean believes there were fouls in the build up to both of Leeds' goals as they roared back into the game.
Kean said: “When you look at it, it should look like a point gained but we are disappointed because we felt as though we were excellent and in total control.
“We felt the turning point was a blatant foul on Paul Robinson. When an attacker is jumping into you you could only lead with one hand, and we felt that was a foul.
“It was a big moment because they went in with their tails up after pulling a goal back.
“I have looked at it five or six times and certainly the second goal, Gael Givet is nudged in the back and a great finish. We feel that was a foul.
“There were big turning points and we feel we were on the wrong end of a couple.”
